The first flight of the relaunched service arrived in the heart of the city on Sunday afternoon. For now, four flights a week will depart from Debrecen to Germany’s second-largest airport.
From Munich travellers have access to 211 destinations, making it possible to reach virtually anywhere in the world.
Including Munich, you can now fly from Debrecen to 12 destinations.
With Lufthansa’s restart, we’ve basically reached a milestone here again in the post-COVID era, which we hope will bring the operator a stable and steady boost in terms of passenger numbers, said János Vajda, CEO of Debrecen International Airport Kft.
The goal is for the airport to reach one million passengers by 2025. The city’s economic development performance over the past year, with a number of newcomers, most of them German-owned, is expected to generate significant traffic for the new service.
We are very optimistic, we can say that in terms of our economic development and tourism objectives, the biggest added value is the international airport, including in terms of economic development, the most important is the Munich route, which connects the capital with Germany’s second-largest airport pointed out Ádám Kovács.
The number of bookings for the new flight is steadily increasing, with forty percent of passengers travelling for business and the rest for leisure.
Now we thought that the demand was sufficient to launch four flights instead of three, as in 2016. Of course, as passengers’ appetite for flying returns – both business and leisure – there will be no reason why we should not increase the number of flights. said Gábor Antal, Director of Passenger Traffic at Deutsche Lufthansa Group.
Experience has shown that more and more people are flying: the number of passengers flying with the airline more than quadrupled in the first quarter compared to the same period last year.
