Significantly more flights to classic summer sun destinations – Türkiye especially in fashion / Completely new destinations: Kutaisi in Georgia, Nador in Morocco and Graz / Four other destinations return to Hamburg route network


More choice for sunshine: The new summer timetable enters operation at Hamburg Airport on 26 March 2023. It is valid until 28 October 2023. There are several flights every day to such classic sunshine destinations as Mallorca and Türkiye. Furthermore, there are also seven new destinations which were previously not directly connected with Hamburg or have not been served for quite a while. The completely new destinations are Kutaisi (Georgia), Nador (Morocco) and Graz; Malta, Tunis, Geneva and Bergen are all returning to the route network. A total of 55 airlines offer direct flights to 120 destinations.

“In the new summer timetable, the airlines have responded to the continuing growth in demand. They have further increased frequencies to popular destinations such as Mallorca, the Canary Islands and Türkiye whilst adding new routes from Hamburg to their network. With summer sun destinations amongst the most popular, there are numerous holiday flights taking off for the south several times a day. But destinations offering adventure holidays in the fresh air are also very popular. The airlines are therefore offering more choice heading north and into the mountains. For the people of northern Germany, this colourful mix means a lot of freedom and flexibility when they are planning their travels,” says Katja Bromm, Head of Communications at Hamburg Airport.

New destinations in Hamburg Airport’s route network

If you want to explore new locations during your travels, you can look forward to three completely new direct destinations from Hamburg. From 5 May, Eurowings are flying non-stop to Graz every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Surrounded by mountains and nature, Austria’s second-largest city has kept its regional charm and offers a mixture of recreation and adventure holiday. Nador in Morocco is another completely new destination introduced by Eurowings, with weekly flights every Wednesday starting on 5 July.

Hungarian airline Wizz Air is also adding a brand new non-stop destination, Kutaisi in Georgia. If you have family or friends to visit there, or want to discover the few touristy areas, you can fly there any Monday or Friday from 2 June.

Popular direct destinations return to Hamburg route network

One popular destination is returning to Hamburg’s route network right at the start of the new summer timetable. Geneva in Switzerland will be served by Swiss four times per week from 26 March. The “smallest of the big metropolises” offers plenty of variety, from a refreshing dip in Lake Geneva or a museum visit to a stroll through the picturesque Old Town or a hike in the Alps. Fans of Scandinavia have a new direct service to look forward to as well. Norwegian airline Widerøe is resuming scheduled services from Hamburg with four flights per week to Bergen in Norway starting at the beginning of June.

Eurowings are also bringing two popular summer sun destinations back to the Hamburg route network. If you want to spend your holiday on an island, you can fly to Malta any Sunday from 14 May, enjoying the sun all year round, with around 300 sunny days per year. From July to the start of September, the German airline is also offering a seasonal service to Tunis, capital of Tunisia, every Tuesday.

Additional services to existing destinations

In addition to the completely new destinations, there is also more choice on seven other routes thanks to additional airlines adding services from Hamburg. From 1 April, German charter carrier Condor is operating twice weekly flights to Malaga in Spain, increasing to four weekly flights from June. A daily service to Antalya, gateway to the Turqouise Coast, will be on offer from May. Also in May, Condor partner Marabu Airlines is launching operations from Hamburg, operating part of the Condor network along with two new destinations. From 13 May, the airline will offer three flights per week to the Portuguese port city of Faro. If your aim is the capital city of Italy, you can take advante of one of the four new Hamburg-Rome services, flying with Marabu Airlines as of 27 May. Another destination with plenty of sunshine for northern German travellers is the Spanish port city of Bilbao, with two additional flights per week being launched by Vueling from 3 July. On 15 May, Air Serbia returns to Hamburg with three weekly services to Belgrade, expanding the range of flights to the city.

If you would rather explore volcanoes, geysers and lava fields, it is becoming much easier to reach Iceland as of May. The new airline PLAY is commencing services to the capital, Reykjavík, flying every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday to this perfect starting point for road trips around the island. Reykjavík is also the Icelandic carrier’s hub for services to the USA, allowing northern Germans flexibility as they fly to a range of American destinations with just one change. From Easter, there is also more flexibility in travel to Oslo, with SAS Scandinavian Airlines adding two weekly services for the summer.

Large choice of destinations in Türkiye

Summer will see a particularly large number of flights from Hamburg to the popular holiday destination of Türkiye. There will be several flights per day from Hamburg to classic destinations such as Antalya and Istanbul. During the high summer season, Turkish airline Sun Express is also operating seasonal services to Türkiye, with weekly flights to Ankara and Adana between July and September, both destinations of particular interest to people wanting to visit family and friends at home. Charter airlines such as Southwind and Mavi Gök, flying on behalf of tour operators, provide even more capacity from Hamburg Airport to Türkiye. 

Outlook: three new direct destinations from October 2023

Shortly before the end of the summer timetable, as it already begins to cool off in Hamburg, a new airline is launching operations from Hamburg, enriching the route network with three new destinations: from 10 October, Spanish airline Volotea will be operating two flights per week to Lyon and Bordeaux in France and to Florence in Italy. All three destinations are new to Hamburg’s route network and will be served by Volotea with year-round scheduled flights.
