Even more on offer: the new winter flight schedule features new airlines and new Eastern European and Scandinavian destinations 

Press release no. 20/2019

The winter flight schedule for Albrecht Dürer Airport Nuremberg (valid from 27 October 2019) includes seven new destinations and expanded capacity. After a break of several years, the Scandinavian metropolis of Copenhagen is back on the schedule. An average of 60 non-stop destinations in 24 countries are currently served, including 14 European capitals and nine international hubs.

Ryanair is flying to the Danish capital twice a week and will also join Wizz Air in including Kiev/Kyiv (Ukraine) on its flight schedule. The following summer destinations are also on the winter schedule for the first time: SunExpress will fly to Izmir (Turkey). Wizz Air will operate routes to Sofia (Bulgaria) and Timişoara (Romania). Air Serbia will connect Nuremberg to Niš (Serbia) and Ryanair will fly to Naples.

Ryanair will also take over the Tel Aviv and Athens routes previously operated by Germania. Dubai is also on the schedule again. This popular winter destination is exclusively marketed via FTI and flown by Holiday Europe. The tour operator FTI is offering trips to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt. TUIfly is continuing to expand its presence in Nuremberg and is strongly represented on the new schedule with a number of attractive winter destinations.

From 1 January 2020, Austrian Airlines will take over the daily Nuremberg-Vienna connection from Eurowings and will then also offer flights on saturdays.

The winter season will also see Corendon Airlines Europe base its first aircraft in Nuremberg. It will also offer flights to the Canary Islands several times a week. With TUIfly, Eurowings and Corendon, three airlines will offer connections to the Canary Islands as part of the winter schedule. Corendon's schedule also includes Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Las Palmas (Gran Canaria), as well as Hurghada (Egypt).

It has been possible to replace a significant proportion of the destinations that were lost due to the Germania insolvency and were still part of the last winter flight schedule. Additional destinations have already been announced for summer 2020. Some Ryanair routes (e.g. Madrid, Krakow and Bari) will not be operated in winter in favour of other routes. Berlin (Eurowings), Lyon (HOP!) and Brussels (BMIregional) are no longer on the schedule.
