According to its own information, the German regional airport Weeze has a more extensive winter program than before the corona pandemic. Among other things, flights to Gran Canaria and Egypt, operated by Corendon, are new.
The airlines operating at Niederrhein Airport are offering up to 2021 flights to 22 destinations per week in the upcoming winter flight schedule 49/25. The number of seats should be 20 percent higher than in winter 2019/20. “The upcoming flight schedule also makes it clear that we are still climbing after the Corona crisis. The airlines are increasingly relying on the Weeze location in winter too. This means that we can again offer our German and Dutch guests a wide range of options, ”explains Sebastian Papst, Managing Director of Airport Weeze.
The Turkish airline Corendon Airlines, which started routes to Antalya, Egypt and Greece from Weeze for the first time in the summer season, flies to the sun-safe destination Gran Canaria in winter and also continues the connection to Hurghada. In addition, the Irish airline Ryanair will remain strongly represented at Niederrhein Airport. Destinations such as Faro (Portugal), Alicante (Spain) or Bari and Ancona (Italy) will continue to be controlled from Weeze. New to this winter flight schedule are Lanzarote, Tenerife, Milan-Bergamo and Zagreb. From Weeze there are four of the most popular Canary Islands to choose from: Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.
“We register very clearly that the desire to travel to Corona is great. Many travelers have some catching up to do. That is why we are particularly happy that we can offer many destinations that are guaranteed to have sunshine - even in winter, ”says Managing Director Sebastian Papst.
The ticket seller Green Airlines intends to sell charter flights to Munich and Berlin from February 14, 2021, according to a press release from Weeze Airport, "highly efficient turboprop aircraft" that was not specified. These are erroneously referred to as "scheduled flights" in the media statement. Since Green Airlines is only a sales company and not an airline, this company cannot offer scheduled flights under aviation law. Green Airlines, which has repeatedly hit the headlines, also wants to market charter flights to Westerland from May. In Paderborn, success has so far been very limited.
