Britain’s Flybe airline has begun operating a flight, previously operated by Eurowings, from Hamburg Airport to Birmingham after a short break, a press release said Monday (July 10, 2017). The connection will be available four times weekly initially and six times per week from winter. Eurowings had suspended the connection in mid June 2017. Dr. Jörgen Kearsley, Director of Aviation Marketing at Hamburg Airport, said: “We are delighted that Flybe is taking over this connection which is important for business people and that the English city will remain in our diverse route network.”

Birmingham’s main attractions include the National Sealife Centre, the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and the jewellery district, which has the highest density of jewellers in Europe.
