TUI fly will again station an aircraft at Nuremberg Airport for the start of the summer tourist flight schedule. Germany's most popular holiday airline will fly from Nuremberg directly to Heraklion, Corfu, Kos and Rhodes (Greece); Fuerteventura, Las Palmas and Tenerife (Canary Islands); and Hurghada and Marsa Alam (Egypt).
Never before in its 64-year history has Nuremberg Airport recorded so many passengers: 4.467 million passengers used Germany's most popular airport (Business Traveller Award 2008 - 2018) for business and holiday trips in 2018. The 6.7 percent increase on the previous year is due mainly to strong growth in the tourism sector. The busiest month was August, with over 500,000 passengers for the first time ever. The most successful day was 19 August 2018, with 20,777 passengers.
The jury of the international World Route Development Forum, World Routes, has awarded Albrecht Dürer Airport Nürnberg yet again with the World Routes Marketing Award – this time in competition with major airports of 4 to 20 million passengers. The award, which was presented in the southern Chinese port city of Guangzhou, is considered one of the highest distinctions awarded to airports and is much coveted by the industry. Managing Director Dr. Michael Hupe is delighted "about the industry’s renewed accolade".
