TUI fly expands schedule at Nuremberg Airport

Press release 02/2019

  • Boeing 737 to be stationed at Nuremberg for the start of the summer tourist flight schedule
  • Over 600 flights and 60,000 seats available - first flight on 24 April
  • Flights to Greece, Canary Islands and Egypt available to book immediately 

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).

“We reacted quickly,” says Oliver Lackmann, Managing Director of TUIfly GmbH. “TUI fly will return to Nuremberg with over 600 flights and a Boeing 737-800 stationed on site this summer.” He sees enormous potential in Franconia and is delighted to be able to offer so many direct connections to sunny holiday destinations. Flights on the summer schedule are available to book now. “TUI is offering connections to hotspots in Southern Europe and North Africa as well as an almost unlimited selection of hotels,” Mr Lackmann continues.

"TUI fly’s rapid reaction confirms the attractiveness of the Nuremberg metropolitan region,” says Dr Michael Hupe, Managing Director of Nuremberg Airport. He sees a partnership with a renowned operator as going some way to providing a prompt answer to the reduced number of flights caused by Germania’s insolvency. “As a traditionally strong market for TUI, we are pleased that holidaymakers from Northern Bavaria can continue to benefit from a wide range of non-stop flights to popular tourist destinations,” he continues.

“TUI fly can rely on its own station in Nuremberg,” adds Mr Lackmann. “And our cabin and cockpit crew are delighted to be flying directly from home again.” TUI fly will depart southward from Nuremberg several times a day. “I hope that every flight will have the full capacity of 189 passengers on board,” adds Mr Lackmann. The first flight will depart for the capital of Crete, Heraklion, on 24 April.
