Rostock: German Airways before entering the scheduled business

The German airport Rostock-Laage is now in the hands of the Zeitfracht Group. This wants to set up a maintenance center of the subsidiary German Airways and can also imagine that for the first time they will take up scheduled flights on their own account.

CEO Wolfram Simon-Schröter told Norddeutscher Rundfunk that they wanted to develop the airport into a “small cargo hub”. As an example, he cited, among other things, deliveries from Adler's stores that were bought out of bankruptcy. 

But also domestic German scheduled flights for your own account are checked. Simon-Schröter told NDR that he saw the potential for at least one Embraer 190 from German Airways to be stationed at Rostock-Laage Airport. With this “domestic German as well as tourist destinations could be served independently”. The manager has not yet commented on possible routes.

    Especially after the end of Tegel, the north-east lacks a scheduled airport and Rostock-Laage is ideal for this.
    The earlier scheduled flights to Munich, Cologne, Stuttgart and Frankfurt were quite well booked by business planes during the week and by holidaymakers at the weekends.
    If you start with one machine, it can cover that quite well.
    Eg Mondays, Wednesdays mornings Munich 6 a.m. there/ 8 a.m. back; 10 a.m. Cologne outward/ 12 return
    Tuesdays and Thursdays then Frankfurt and Stuttgart.
    All 4 airports on Friday, although Munich and Cologne would be more desirable in the evening.
    And again on Sunday evening in Stuttgart and Frankfurt, when Munich and Cologne fly on Monday morning.
    The minimum would be flights on Friday evening and Sunday evening for business, commuters and holidaymakers.
