The new Laudamotion airline celebrated its maiden flight from Hamburg to Palma de Mallorca Friday (June 1, 2018) and is now operating a daily flight on the route. The closure of Air Berlin and NIKI had led to a reduced number of seats from Hamburg to the Balearic island this summer over 2017.
Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport, said: “Palma is one of our most popular European destinations in terms of passenger numbers. In 2017 alone, nearly 1 million passengers flew from Hamburg to Majorca. We are delighted that Laudamotion is meeting the great demand for flights to Germans’ favourite island and increasing the supply on this route and closing the gap that has been in existence since last year. Our passengers benefit from an even wider choice of flights to their holiday destination.”
Over 60 Laudamotion routes
Niki Lauda, CEO of Laudamotion, said: “We are pleased to be able to offer connections from Hamburg also. The access to Ryanair.com gives Laudamotion a first-class platform for more than 60 Laudamotion routes from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”
