Flybe is ‘biggest German grower’

Flybe has been identified as the fastest growing airline in the German market.

Low cost carrier Flybe has been identified as the fastest growing airline in the German market by the German Centre for Aero and Spacetravel’s Low Cost Monitor survey.

Posting a 392 per cent increase in flight ranking over the past 12 months, Flybe now runs 128 weekly flights in Germany, a large increase from the 26 flights it offered in 2006-2007.

Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, said: "We’re absolutely delighted to be significantly ahead of our competitors in terms of growth in Germany. This can be attributed to our tried and trusted regional business model which serves many of Germany’s key airports.

We look forward to continuing to serve the German market over the coming months and to further demonstrating our commitment to the region, providing travellers with an affordable, efficient and customer-focused travel experience."

While Flybe has steadily raised the quantity of its German operations, Ryanair has recently announced plans to enter the German domestic flight market, embarking on an ambitious Berlin-Frankfurt route in May.

German flyers will also see their options improve this summer as Korean Air launches a thrice weekly service from Munich to Seoul, adding to its existing Frankfurt-Seoul route.

Additionally, flag carrier Lufthansa will renew flights from the Cologne-Bonn and Berlin-Schoenefeld airports to two Bulgarian hubsBurgas and Varna – next month.
