More flights to sunny destinations / New routes to Georgia, Morocco and Graz

More choice in the sun: The new Hamburg Airport summer timetable comes into effect on 26 March 2023 and is scheduled until 28 October 2023. The classic getaway destinations such as Majorca and Turkey are served several times a day from Hamburg. In addition, airlines add seven new destinations previously not directly connected to Hamburg or not served for some time. Kutaissi (Georgia), Nador (Morocco) and Graz are new connections, while Malta, Tunis, Geneva and Bergen are being reintroduced. A total of 55 airlines will fly to 120 direct destinations.

"In the new summer timetable, the airlines have reacted to the further increase in demand: they have further increased frequencies to popular destinations such as Majorca, the Canary Islands or Turkey and have added new routes to their flight offerings from Hamburg. Numerous holiday planes take off several times a day for the south, as sun destinations are at the top of the hit list. But destinations that invite you to spend an active holiday in the fresh air are also very popular. That is why the airlines also offer more choice in the direction of the north or the mountains. This colourful mix offers northern Germans a lot of freedom and flexibility when planning their travels," says Katja Bromm, Head of Communications at Hamburg Airport.
