Summer flight schedule 2024 starts at Hamburg Airport


New intercontinental connection: With Qatar Airways to Doha // Back in the Hamburg route network: Chisinau (Moldova) // First flight series at the start of the season // Several times daily to classic holiday destinations


The new summer timetable at Hamburg Airport comes into force on 31 March 2024. It is valid until 26 October 2024. This year, Hamburg Airport is starting the new season with an inaugural series of flights - three airlines are launching a new route in the first few days of the summer timetable. As a highlight, Qatar Airways will connect the Hanseatic city non-stop with its hub in Doha from 1 July, via which it flies to more than 170 long-haul destinations worldwide. Chisinau is another destination returning to the Hamburg route network. There are also six destinations that will be even easier to reach in future as additional airlines will be flying to them. The most popular holiday destinations such as Majorca and Turkey can be reached non-stop several times a day. A total of 55 airlines fly to 120 direct destinations.


"It's summertime again at Hamburg Airport. The airlines are starting the new season immediately, with three of a total of eight inaugural flights taking place in the first week. At the same time, the airlines are increasing their frequencies again and flying even more frequently to popular destinations such as Majorca and Turkey. Holiday flights to the south are taking off several times a day. This clearly shows that demand for air travel - especially in the holiday segment - is high. In addition to the classic sunshine destinations, long-haul holidays are also popular. We are therefore all the more pleased that Qatar Airways will be starting operations at Hamburg Airport, making more than 170 destinations worldwide even more flexibly accessible," says Katja Bromm, Head of Communications at Hamburg Airport.


With Qatar Airways from Hamburg to the whole world

Qatar Airways will commence operations at Hamburg Airport on 1 July 2024. The award-winning airline will fly non-stop from Hamburg to Doha once a day. The new connection opens up Qatar Airways' diverse route network to northern Germans. Doha Airport is the airline's hub, from where it flies to more than 170 destinations worldwide. Fascinating long-haul destinations in Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand can be reached with just one change of planes. The airline's top 10 destinations include the Indonesian island of Bali, the Nepalese capital Kathmandu and Phuket in Thailand. 


Chisinau back in the Hamburg route network

HiSky Europe commences operations at Hamburg Airport on 26 May. It connects the Hanseatic city non-stop with Chisinau in Moldova. Flights will take place every Wednesday and Sunday. The service is primarily aimed at people who want to visit family and friends in Moldova.


Additional connections to six existing destinations

Six destinations will be even more flexible to reach from Hamburg in future, as additional airlines will be flying to them. Three of these will take off directly in the first week of the new summer timetable: On 31 March, Eurowings will launch a new route from Hamburg to Manchester. City travellers will be able to reach the metropolis in the north-west of England four times a week with the German airline. Wizz Air will also be launching a new service to Rome on 31 March, with four weekly flights planned. With the launch of this connection, the airline is continuing its expansion into Southern Europe, having previously only had destinations in Eastern Europe in its programme from Hamburg. Just one day later, on 1 April, Nouvelair will commence scheduled operations at Hamburg Airport. The airline will start with non-stop flights to Tunis in Tunisia, twice a week. From 26 June, the Tunisian airline will also be offering a charter flight from Hamburg to Djerba every Wednesday.


The airlines will continue to expand their portfolios in the following weeks: In addition to Manchester as a city destination, Eurowings is also adding two classic holiday destinations to its programme. From 30 April, the airline will be flying twice a week non-stop from Hamburg to Jerez de la Frontera. The city in the Spanish region of Andalusia is famous for its sherry wines, wild horses and flamenco. With Zakynthos, Eurowings is also adding a Greek destination to its programme on 5 May. Northern Germans will be able to reach the popular holiday island every Sunday. Following the winter break, Air Baltic will once again be flying non-stop from Hamburg to Vilnius from 2 May. The route will be served on Thursdays and Sundays.


More flights to popular destinations

In addition, many other destinations will be even easier to reach from Hamburg in summer 2024 because the airlines are increasing their capacities. There will be 14 per cent more flights to Mallorca compared to the previous season. The airlines will be flying to the popular Balearic island up to 12 times a day. Eurowings and Vueling are offering a total of 30 per cent more seats to Barcelona than in the previous season. In addition to Spain, the airlines are also focussing more on Scandinavia - Helsinki in particular will be much easier to reach with Finnair and will be served up to three times a day.


Overall, Hamburg Airport has an extensive route network. International hubs such as London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Dubai can be reached several times a day.


New direct destination from September 2024

Shortly before the end of the summer flight schedule, Volotea is adding a new connection to its programme: from 17 September, it will be flying twice a week from Hamburg to Nantes in France. This is already the fourth direct destination that the airline is offering non-stop from Hamburg. After a short winter break, Volotea will also be flying non-stop to Florence in Italy again from the end of March and to Lyon and Bordeaux in France from April. Volotea specialises in linking cities that previously had no direct connection. This also applies to all four routes to and from Hamburg.
