The 2022/23 winter flight schedule will also begin shortly at Hamburg Airport. The airport expects that the high summer demand can be "taken along" and in a press release refers to numerous holiday destinations that are offered from this airport.
“In winter, the high demand for air travel continues. Holidays are and remain the highlight of the year for many North Germans. The airlines have responded to this need and offer an eclectic mix of sunny regions, cities and ski resorts across Europe. Autumn is also the best time to travel to many long-distance destinations. Thanks to the good connection to important hubs, regions all over the world can be reached from Hamburg with just one transfer - in addition to a large selection of direct destinations," says Dirk Behrens, Head of Aviation at Hamburg Airport.
It is currently assumed that around 50 airlines will use the airport. They have planned about 90 non-stop destinations. Wizz Air is expanding its offer to include a completely new destination and will be flying to the Bulgarian capital Sofia three times a week from December. A total of around 50 airlines fly to 90 destinations directly from Hamburg Airport. North Germans travel to the most popular destinations such as Dubai, the Canary Islands or Hurghada (Egypt) several times a week. The Spanish island of La Palma and Ankara in Turkey will again be served non-stop in winter.
In winter, Eurowings and Condor connect Hamburg again non-stop with La Palma. North Germans travel to Dubai twice a day with Emirates. On the African continent, Monastir and Hurghada can be found in the Hamburg winter timetable. Eurowings and Condor offer, for example, Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Fuerteventura as well as Lanzarote. Both carriers also have Portuguese Madeira in their portfolio. For example, Pegasus flies to Ankara.
Low-cost airline Wizz Air will start a non-stop service to Sofia three times a week on December 13, 2022. The route is to be served on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday traffic days. In addition to La Palma, Eurowings has added two more sunny destinations to its winter portfolio. Lisbon has flights every Wednesday and Saturday. In Egypt, Hurghada is in the portfolio.
