“We are delighted that Corendon Airlines is expanding its commitment to Dresden Airport by running flights to the popular holiday resort of Hurghada again this summer. The airline is an important partner to our Dresden and Leipzig/Halle Airports, connecting the region with a range of attractive sunshine destinations. At the same time, the flights to Egypt are closing the gap in services at Dresden that arose following the insolvency of Germania,” says Götz Ahmelmann, Mitteldeutscher Flughafen AG CEO and chairman of the boards of Dresden and Leipzig/Halle Airports.
Thomas Braun, Germany Manager of Corendon Airlines, adds: “Corendon Airlines is increasing its commitment to Eastern Germany with the introduction of additional flights between Dresden Airport and Egypt. For us, Dresden has been an important, stable market for many years and expanding our flights at this time is a logical consequence of that. We are delighted to have been able to further expand our excellent working relationship with Dresden Airport by taking this step.”
