New airline in Dresden: Sundair launches flights to Crete and Rhodes

The airline Sundair took off from Dresden Airport for the first time on Tuesday morning. The Airbus A320 left for Heraklion in Crete with 169 passengers on board. Sundair will be flying to Greece’s largest island every Tuesday until 23 October. The flying time is just under three hours. To mark the maiden flight, the airport fire service gave it the traditional water fountain send-off, and the crew members were presented with flowers and small gifts.

Another new flight also launches next week: from 3 September to 22 October 2018, Sundair will be flying from Dresden to Rhodes. Flights will depart at 14:20 every Monday during this period. The airline will also be operating an Airbus A320 on this route with 174 seats.

The two routes are listed in the timetable under various travel operators, including Schauinsland Reisen. Sundair tickets can also be purchased on the company’s own website:


Sundair is a young, independent airline headquartered in Stralsund. It has bases at Berlin-Tegel and Kassel airports. As a holiday and charter airline, Sundair flies to the prettiest destinations in the Mediterranean, such as Majorca, and to the Egyptian resort of Hurghada on the Red Sea. This year it carried more than 160,000 passengers.
The young airline operates a modern fleet consisting of two A320-214 planes built by the European manufacturer Airbus Industries. With the addition of two more A320-214s by the late summer, the fleet will double in size to four aircraft.
