Channel Islanders will be able to travel on direct flights to Dusseldorf and Hanover from Guernsey next summer.
This is thanks to airberlin, with Germany’s second-largest airline launching flights to the second-largest of the Channel Islands from Hanover on April 16th next year.
The airline already operates flights to Jersey from Germany, with all its Channel Island services due to fly on Saturdays in a development that will appeal to leisure passengers.
Flights will operate throughout airberlin’s summer schedule, which begins in the middle of April and draws to a close in September.
Feeder flights to Hanover and Dusseldorf will be available from Berlin, Munich and Vienna.
In September, airberlin accommodated more than 3.6 million passengers, an increase of 8.7 percent from the same month 12 months previously.
Between January and the end of September, the carrier transported over 25 million customers on its route network; 2.9 percent higher than the corresponding period in 2009.
