Extend your summer now: Canaries, Turkey and more destinations non-stop from Nuremberg

Presseinformation Nr. 14/2021

Nuremberg Airport recorded its busiest travel month in August since the beginning of the pandemic. But even after the summer holidays, a wide range of flights remains on offer. September and October are the ideal time to travel, for example, for those who don't travel with school-age children.

More than 200,000 passengers used Nuremberg Airport for their travels in August. Significantly more than in the previous year, but still 55 per cent less than in August 2019 and thus before the pandemic. Even after the peak season, passengers can choose from up to 40 non-stop destinations from Nuremberg. Demand to Mallorca and the Canary Islands in particular is picking up significantly, as Spain is no longer a high-risk area and the quarantine obligation therefore no longer applies (even for those who have not been vaccinated). Eurowings, Corendon and Ryanair fly to Mallorca several times a day, Corendon and Smart Lynx (TUI) fly to the Canary Islands several times a week.

Also very popular are Turkey and Greece, where summer temperatures continue to prevail. Although there is a high-risk warning for Turkey and some Greek islands, there are no restrictions for those who are vaccinated and have recovered. And especially in the late season, many holiday destinations have not been this quiet in recent years.

These are the late summer destinations from Nuremberg: Egypt (Hurghada), Greece (Thessaloniki, Corfu, Kos, Heraklion and Chania on Crete, Rhodes), Italy (Sardinia and Sicily), Spain (Majorca, Barcelona, Alicante, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Tenerife), Turkey (Antalya, Izmir).

Please note: Travellers should check the entry requirements of their destination country in advance, fill in the relevant forms in if necessary and arrive at the airport two hours before departure.
