In the current 2022/23 winter timetable period, a total of 46 airlines are offering flights from Düsseldorf to 120 destinations in 41 countries. One or the other new destination is also included.
"We are pleased that many new or reactivated routes from the summer will also be continued outside of the main season," explains Thomas Schnalke, CEO of Flughafen Düsseldorf GmbH. “It is a good sign that the flight schedules of our airline partners remain largely stable and also contain attractive route premieres. The upward trend at Düsseldorf Airport continues, and our passengers, whether business travelers or holidaymakers, can look forward to a wide range of great new destinations.”
A particularly large number of destinations are headed for in Spain. The airlines operating from Düsseldorf fly to a total of 14 destinations in this country. In the direction of Italy, there are nine destinations in the portfolio. However, the Canary Islands are often also served: Condor, Corendon Europe, TUIfly and Eurowings, for example, all fly to Gran Canaria or Tenerife more than 20 times a week. There are also many flights to Turkey. These are operated by Turkish Airlines, Corendon, SunExpress and Pegasus, for example.
In Egypt, classics such as Hurghada, Marsa Alam and Sharm El Shaik are headed for. New to the program is Luxor, which is served by Tuifly. The carrier also flies to Dakar in addition to the previous flights to Sal and Boa Vista. Eurowings offers the Nordic destinations Lulea, Kittilä and Kiruna, among others. Rovaniemi and Keflavik are also on the itinerary.
There is movement even on long-haul routes. The long-standing partner of Düsseldorf Airport Emirates is increasing the weekly flight frequencies to Dubai and will be serving the route thirteen times a week in November and then twice a day from December. The airline uses Boeing "Triple Seven" aircraft and the Airbus A380, the largest civil aircraft in the world, underscoring the importance of connecting Düsseldorf and the Rhine-Ruhr region to the hub in Dubai.
Condor flies cruise vacationers to Abu Dhabi, Montego Bay (Jamaica), La Romana (Dominican Republic), Barbados and Dubai-World Central. The non-stop connection to Doha operated by Qatar Airways is new. This will start on November 15, 2022 and will be served by Boeing 787-8.
