Accompanied by protests, the first scheduled flight after a long break from Lübeck-Blankensee airport took place on Monday morning. The in-house brand Lübeck Air, operated by Air Alsie, now offers connections to Munich and Stuttgart, which are carried out with ATR72-500.

According to a report by North German Broadcasting the regional airport was besieged by so-called climate protectors. The police say there are around 80 demonstrators, while the organizers themselves assume 150 participants. Some had tried to gain access to the security area and, according to the report, wanted to attach themselves to the runway with superglue according to the report.

Another three “climate protectors” are said to have purchased regular flight tickets and tried to glue themselves with superglue during boarding. The troublemakers were led away according to the police. The first flight to Munich was delayed by about half an hour due to the incidents and took off shortly after 7:00 a.m. for Munich.

Air Alsie carries out up to two daily trips to the Bavarian capital on behalf of Lübeck Air. A lunchtime rotation to Stuttgart is also offered. At the weekend there will be a reduced number of flights. Due to the Corona crisis, the start of Lübeck Air was delayed by a few weeks.
