Graz Airport: Summer Flight Plan 2013

100 flights a week to major hub airports

Feldkirchen bei Graz, 27 March 2013: The new Summer Flight Plan at Graz Airport will start on Sunday 31 March; the plan is remarkably extensive and varied with 50 destinations in 17 countries, numerous holiday flights and a dense network of scheduled air services.

“Our summer flight plan this year will bring an outstanding mix. Numerous popular holiday destinations can be readily reached, excellent connections to the big hub airports guarantee a perfect network to the world and we also have many special flights to somewhat “unusual” destinations”, Mag. Gerhard Widmann, CEO of Graz Airport said.

A few of the facts

Holiday flights:

  • Greece is represented with 11 destinations on 10 islands. The first flights will start in early May to the southern destination of Crete; Corfu, Naxos, Rhodes, Skiathos, Santorin and Zakynthos will follow later in May.
  • Palma de Mallorca will once again have 6 planned departures a week. The biggest and best loved Balearic Island can be reached daily except Saturdays from early June through to the end of September. Again on offer this year: the many connecting flights offered by NIKI/airberlin from the Palma de Mallorca hub. Numerous popular destinations on the Iberian Peninsula are in easy reach with fast and convenient connecting flights.
  • The holiday destinations Antalya, Hurghada, Palma de Mallorca, Sharm el Sheikh and Tenerife are on the plan from the start of the summer season through to the end of October.


Special holiday flights:

  • A highly varied special flights provision is on offer this year. The attractive destinations included are Bari, Bordeaux, Bourgas, Catania, Exeter, Lisbon, Marrakech, Ohrid or Tallinn.

 

Scheduled flights:

  • The Summer Flight Plan is to bring a big boost to the new direct scheduled link with Zurich launched by InterSky in January. Flights will be offered three times daily from Mondays to Fridays, with a slightly lower weekend frequency to this major city and hub airport in Switzerland.
  • From early May airberlin is also to increase flight frequencies to the German capital. One direct flight a day will be available Mondays to Fridays and also on Sundays from Graz to Berlin.
  • Graz now offers over 100 flights a week to the big international hub airports Frankfurt, Vienna, Munich, Zurich and Berlin; a special quality standard not only for business travellers, but also for outstanding vacation travel provisions.
