Over 90 destinations scheduled at EuroAirport in summer 2021

Despite the uncertainties associated with the pandemic, a new seasonal flight schedule is now available at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg for summer 2021, which came into force on 28 March. New destinations in Europe and around the Mediterranean basin have been added, and new airlines are setting up operations at Basel-Mulhouse Airport.

New destinations and a broader offer

Travel Safely - Our Destinations

People looking to plan their summer trips now, over the crisis and subject to pandemic-related restrictions, can visit EuroAirport’s website and discover the new summer 2021 flight schedule. With over 90 destinations, the seasonal schedule includes several new cities. Thus, despite the crisis, the Airport continues to ensure the connectivity of the tri-national region towards nearly all cities in Europe and the Mediterranean, with the added comfort of non-stop direct flights.
The situation remains volatile, however, and timetables may be subject to change. Accordingly, passengers are strongly advised to consult EuroAirport’s website and contact their airline before their trip. The exceptional circumstances associated with the crisis and the continuous changes in the many travel restrictions issued by the different national health authorities have a direct impact on bookings and, as a result, on flight schedules.

Spain, with a dozen or so cities and islands already among the most popular destinations from Basel-Mulhouse, has added another city, one reputed for its port and its futuristic architecture: Valencia. EasyJet plans to serve Valencia two or three times a week. Basel-Mulhouse also has five flights a week to Palermo, in Sicily, operated by easyJet and WizzAir. Moreover, a major Balkan city has been added to the flight plan: Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, a city full of cultural diversity and rich in history, is accessible from 21 May in little more than one hour and a half from Regio TriRhena, three times a week with WizzAir.

A few destinations that had been opened last summer but could not be maintained given the circumstances are back again: Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, and Tirana, the capital of Albania, both served by WizzAir. Turkish Airlines has a new regular line to Sabiha Gökcen, Istanbul’s international airport, which comes on top of the Pegasus line to the same airport.
                                                                         
Even more sunny destinations
Apart from the Balearic Islands and the Canaries, which are leading destinations the whole year around, Basel-Mulhouse has lines to Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and nearly the whole Adriatic coast.
Egypt takes a place of honour in this year’s planning with four airlines offering lines to Hurghada: easyJet, Corendon Airlines, Air Cairo, and Fly Egypt.

New airline companies at EuroAirport!
Three new companies will be operating from Basel-Mulhouse Airport starting this spring, some of them opening a base.

ASL Airlines, a French subsidiary of an Irish group, will be flying to two cities in Algeria: Algers and Constantine.

Corendon Airlines, an airline serving over 165 destinations and a subsidiary of a company established in The Netherlands in 2005, is opening its sixth base and will serve about fifteen destinations from Basel-Mulhouse.

Finally, Smartlynx, a European Airline founded in Riga in 1992 and specialising in charter flights, has chosen to open a base at Basel-Mulhouse Airport: Its first flight scheduled on 20 Mai 2021 is commissioned by the multinational travel and tourism company TUI. Six destinations are on its schedule.

Travel safely: new flash tests available!
EuroAirport has implemented all the directives and recommendations of the European Commission with a view to ensuring the maximum level of health security at Basel-Mulhouse Airport, and thus enable passengers to travel confidently. Mandatory face masks, physical distancing, stricter cleaning and sanitising routines, air conditioning with 100% outdoor air: The various precautionary measures are posted on airport signage and announced over the public address system. The EuroAirport website repeats the guidelines on its “Travel Safely” pages: Safe Travel / COVID-19

Moreover, a screening centre has been in operation at the Airport since December 2020. In addition to the conventional PCR and antigenic quick tests, since 1 April 2021 it also offers “flash” PCR tests with results in 90 minutes.
