Germania has declared its readiness to serve more passengers to more routes by basing a second aircraft at Berlin Schönefeld airport. 

On October 20 the Berlin-based airline re-started the weekly services from Berlin Schönefeld (SXF) and Sharm El Sheikh (SSH). The route between the German capital and the Red Sea resort has not been available for four-and-a-half years. The airline expects no direct competition in this sector.  

On October 21 Germania also began the services to Fuerteventura (FUE). Passengers can fly to the Spanish city twice per week – on Tuesday and Saturdays. Here the German carrier has direct competition from Ryanair, who also offer flights twice a week, and from Condor that has a weekly service.  

Both routes will operate on the 737-700 fleet of the carrier. 

In addition to these two new routes, Germania’s winter schedule will also include increased capacity to Hurghada and a new route to Gran Canaria, which is to be launched next week. Clauspeter Schwarz, Germania’s COO, expects the company to achieve 400% growth in Berlin thanks to its greater presence in the capital.
