Dusseldorf International’s winter flight schedule will begin the Sunday after next, October 28, with 170 destinations around the world. New at Nordrhein-Westfalen’s largest airport is Afriqiyah Airways, which flies to Tripoli three times a week. Detroit will be on the winter schedule for the first time with a daily flight on Northwest Airlines. And on top of that, airlines such as Lufthansa or Air Berlin/LTU have expanded services. The flight schedule will be in effect until March 29, 2008.



“Our winter flight schedule combines new routes and proven flights in a new range of services unique in Nordrhein-Westfalen,” says Christoph Blume, spokesperson for the management of Dusseldorf International.

Interesting developments are already being planned for next summer. Lufthansa has announced that as of May, it will be stationing three long-haul Airbus A340 aircraft at the capital of Nordrhein-Westfalen and will add the Canadian metropolis of Toronto to the flight schedule at Dusseldorf. Wide-body aircraft will also be added to the successfully established routes to New York and Chicago. And Air Berlin will also be involved in intercontinental air traffic from Dusseldorf and has announced that it will be flying to Beijing and Shanghai beginning next summer.

“This development means a significant revaluation for Dusseldorf,” says Christoph Blume. Next summer the airport will have over 100 intercontinental take-offs a week.



The new features of the winter flight schedule



As of October 29, a new airline in Dusseldorf, Afriqiyah Airways, will offer three flights a week to Tripoli with an Airbus A320.



Lufthansa will continue offering the vacation destinations Palma and Valencia from its summer program. After a break of almost two months, Malaga will again be on the schedule after October 28. Connections to Warsaw, Kattowitz, and Newcastle will be enhanced significantly. In cooperation with the Star Alliance partner LOT, there will then be 30 flights a week to Warsaw, 13 to Kattowitz, and 12 to Newcastle.



Air Berlin, in cooperation with LGW Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter mbH, offers new flights from Dusseldorf to Hannover and Saarbrucken, up to five a day. In addition, the airline will be increasing the number of flights on many routes, for example, from four to seven weekday flights to Hamburg, and from two to five rotations on weekends. The airline is increasing its flights to Stuttgart on weekdays from four to five and on weekends from a total of two to five rotations, and to Vienna from four to five flights on weekdays. There will also be an additional third rotation to Dresden on Mondays and Tuesdays. And the airline will also be flying to Zurich and Milan-Bergamo more frequently. LTU will increase its flights to Bangkok substantially and offer up to seven flights a week to the capital of Thailand. The airline will also fly to Aruba once a week – every Monday, there will be a flight to this south Caribbean island north of Venezuela.



For the first time, Northwest Airlines of the US will connect Nordrhein-Westfalen with Detroit, the industrial and commercial metropolis in Michigan, on the winter flight schedule. The airline has been offering daily flights to the worldwide center of the automotive industry since June. From Detroit, passengers can connect to over 140 other destinations in North America.



Aer Lingus now offers two flights every weekday to Dublin. After October 21, there will be only one flight on Sunday evenings. Egypt Air will increase the number of flights to Cairo as of October 30 from two to three a week. The added flight will be on Tuesday. For the first time, Aeroflot-Don will fly to Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia in the winter also. The flights will be once a week on Mondays.



Announcements for the summer flight schedule



The airlines have also made a few new announcements for the summer flight schedule that will begin in March of next year.



Lufthansa has announced that it will continue expansion and increase flight offerings at the largest airport in Nordrhein-Westfalen. One new route for the airline, for example, is to the Canadian hub in Toronto. Due to increased demand, this route will be expanded in May 2008 from five to six rotations per week. Lufthansa will use wide-body aircraft on the successfully established routes to New York and Chicago.



Air Berlin has announced that it will be flying from Dusseldorf to Beijing and Shanghai starting next summer and will also be adding domestic German flights.
