Germania makes an exception for the beautiful Baltic Sea and flies domestically in Germany. In late summer, the green-white airline will connect the Ruhr area with Usedom Island and fly directly from Dortmund to Herningsdorf every Friday. From 2 September to 28 October 2017, Germania will use a Boeing 737-700 aircraft for the flight to and from Usedom, which takes well over an hour.
With nearly 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, Usedom is Germany s sunniest region. These are the ideal conditions for a walk along Europe s longest promenade, cycling, hiking, horseback riding, or playing golf. The sea is still warm from the summer and, should the temperatures have already cooled down, the crashing of the waves simmers down with timeless regularity.
This offering is an additional step to sell products away from the hustle and bustle , said Claus Altenburg, Director of Sales at Germania. Those seeking relaxation can extend summer at the Baltic Sea and, in the opposite direction, the Usedom Dortmund connection also makes it possible to connect to Palma de Mallorca. Northern German passengers can then reach the Spanish island more easily. As a similar off-season product, Germania flies from the Nordholz airport to Palma de Mallorca in September and October of this year.
Usedom island is a popular travel destination and, according to experience, heavily in demand after the summer holidays in North Rhine Westphalia. We greatly look forward to offering the connection to Heringsdorf this year with Germania as an airline partner , says Udo Mager, General Manager of Dortmund s airport.
Tickets can be booked online at usedom-reisen.de or flygermania.com, by phone at +49 30 610 818 000 (normal rate when calling from a German landline, mobile phone prices may vary) and at the travel agency.
