Summer flight plan 2022: a wide range of destinations to choose from
Flights to over 90 destinations with 25 airlines: the flight plan for the summer season will start on 27 March 2022 with a number of new destinations.
- Return to greater flight numbers with more hub connections added
- Two new destinations: Chania and Kukës
- One new airline: Air Albania, the national airline of Albania
- Once again flying from EuroAirport: Aegean Airlines to Athens and Air Transat to Montreal
- More latest-generation aircraft operating from EuroAirport
As a regional gateway to Europe and the Mediterranean, EuroAirport is once again offering guests more than 90 non-stop destinations with its 2022 summer flight plan (until 29 October). The offer includes destinations in France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey and Canada, among others.
Once again, there are also many more hub connections to choose from, with various airlines offering attractive transfer options via their international hubs: Aegean Airlines (Athens), Air France (Paris), Austrian Airlines (Vienna), British Airways (London), KLM (Amsterdam), Lufthansa (Frankfurt and Munich), Pegasus Airlines and Turkish Airlines (Istanbul) and Vueling (Barcelona).
EuroAirport is delighted to welcome Air Albania, the national airline of Albania, as the new airline flying between EuroAirport and the city of Kukës in north-eastern Albania (twice a week).
As of May, returning from a break as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Air Transat will once again fly to Montreal with the state-of-the-art Airbus A321 Neo Long-Range (once a week). This long-haul variant of the A320 Neo is one of the most modern aircraft in its class. Air Transat is also enabling passengers to connect to other attractive destinations in Canada via the Montreal hub.
After a long absence, EuroAirport is delighted to welcome back Greek airline Aegean Airlines. Aegean Airlines operates the route to Athens, with transfer options to numerous Greek destinations as well as destinations in the Eastern Mediterranean.
The EuroAirport-based Corendon Airlines is expanding its offer and is now also serving the port city of Chania on Crete, which represents a new destination for EuroAirport. easyJet is also flying to Crete, with flights to Heraklion airport. Wizz Air has expanded its route network with flights from EuroAirport to Rome and Kukës. Due to high demand, Ryanair is increasing the number of flights to Zagreb (to 3 per week).
In this summer flight plan, an increasing number of latest-generation aircraft are operating out of EuroAirport. Air Cairo, British Airways, easyJet, Pegasus, Turkish Airlines and Vueling are using even more A320 Neo and A321 Neo aircraft. Corendon Airlines, Ryanair, SunExpress and Turkish Airlines are increasingly using Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Thanks to their advanced engines and improved aerodynamics, these latest-generation aircraft bring significant reductions in noise and carbon emissions.
More than 60 percent of the flights operating out of EuroAirport have their carbon emissions offset by the airlines easyJet and Air France: EasyJet offsets the carbon emissions of all of its flights while Air France offsets the carbon emissions of its flights within France. EuroAirport is also working in cooperation with the myclimate foundation to give all passengers the option of voluntarily offsetting the carbon emissions of their flights.
Travel regulations are still in force that require additional controls. This will inevitably lead to longer waiting times at checkpoints for both departures and arrivals. An early arrival at the airport is therefore strongly recommended.
Looking ahead to the winter flight plan
We can already announce that Corendon Airlines will be offering a weekly flight to Funchal/Madeira.
