Dusseldorf International has welcomed cheap flights carrier easyJet’s decision to launch a number of new routes from the airport.
From February, the airline will operate flights to Basle, Rome and London from the German airport.
Christoph Blume, chief executive officer of airport management at Dusseldorf, said it was "a pleasure" to welcome the airline to the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia.
"Dusseldorf International provides the most dense and most attractive route network of North Rhine-Westphalia," he explained.
"EasyJet’s top-grade metropolitan connections in the low-budget segment, which are equally interesting for business travellers and tourists, expand and strengthen the varied offer for our passengers."
Flights to Basle are expected to prove particularly popular thanks to the economic ties between the two cities.
This applies to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries in addition to business finance, arts and the insurance sector.
It was recently announced by easyJet that it will switch from Belfast International to Belfast City Airport on January 7th.
