Dresden: Germania stations third aircraft – new destination: Athens

BERLIN, 15 June 2017 – Germania, the airline with the green and white livery, is stationing a third aircraft permanently at Dresden Airport and adding new destinations to its timetable from summer 2018. These are featured in the airline’s new programme of flights from the Saxon capital which it released for booking on Thursday.

“We are seeing very high demand for our tourist flights from tour operators which we cannot always meet in full,” said Claus Altenburg, Director Sales at Germania, commenting on this summer’s business. “In order to meet all the demand we will be boosting our flight offerings with a third Boeing 737-700 next summer and adding an extra 14 flights to our current 33 weekly departures.”

From next summer there will be more frequent flights to the Greek islands of Crete, Rhodes and Kos. Germania will also be adding extra flights to Antalya in Turkey, doubling the volume to four departures per week. The daily flight to Palma de Mallorca will continue, as will flights to the Canary Islands.

Featuring in the timetable for the first time will be the Greek capital Athens, with two flights per week and a range of new onward travel options from there. Thanks to the codeshareing agreement between Germania and the Greek airline Sky Express, passengers from Dresden can take connecting flights to places including the islands of Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Karpathos. There will be a total of ten new destinations on offer from Athens.

“Germania’s commitment to Dresden Airport is a real success story,” says Markus Kopp, CEO of Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG and General Manager of Flughafen Dresden GmbH. “Our Dresdner home carrier has recognised the region’s potential and has become the largest supplier of tourist flights from Dresden. Stationing the third aircraft at Dresden will give passengers from the border triangle region new travel options and will also offer greater time flexibility. Greece is experiencing a very dynamic upturn as a holiday destination, so we are particularly pleased with the new flights to Athens and the many additional transfer options this delivers.”

Flights are available for as little as €49 one-way. Tickets can be booked online at, by phone on +49 (0)30 610 818 000 (standard call rate from German landlines, mobile tariffs may differ) and at any travel agency. All prices quoted include taxes and charges and the statutory German air travel levy.
