French airline Chalair Aviation began Monday (July 4th) offering five weekly flights for business travellers from Hamburg to Antwerp after a short break.
Higher frequency from September 2016
The Hamburg-Antwerp flight connection was suspended in June 2016 after Belgian airline VLM filed for bankruptcy. Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport, said: “We are delighted to have found a new airline for the Hamburg-Antwerp route quickly. Chalair Aviation is a reliable partner and the connection is popular among business travellers.” The airline, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, has also announced two daily flights from September 2016. Chalair Aviation specialises in regional flights and is a partner to Air France/KLM’s frequent flyer programme.
Fly Condor to Malta
A popular flight connection from Hamburg Airport to Malta is also returning to the route network and will be run by Condor from April 26, 2017. Air Malta suspended the route on May 28, 2016. The route is Condor’s 15th destination from Hamburg. The airline already flies to Palma de Mallorca, the Canary Islands and other Spanish destinations, Greece’s islands, Antalya as well as other destinations in Turkey.
