The Danish airline Sun-Air, a franchise partner of British Airways, will launch two new routes from its newly established base in Bremen to London City and Manchester on October 31, 2016.
Sun-Air already operates routes from Billund to London City and Manchester and have extensive experience with these destinations.
Sun-Air’s Commercial Director Kristian Tvergaard said:
“We have over the years developed a great deal of experience with servicing the regional business sectors where focus is on point to point routes, optimised flight schedules tailored to the regional needs with morning departures and evening returns and a high level of in-flight service. We are very pleased with the close cooperation we have had with Bremen Airport in bringing this valuable market opportunity to life and already the new route has had attention and support from both German and British business people.”
Jürgen Bula, CEO Bremen Airport, commented:
“We are very happy about the two new routes from Bremen to London City and Manchester, which are served from the end of October of the British Airways franchise partner Sun-Air of Scandinavia. The brand “British Airways” completes our portfolio of major flag carriers optimally.”
Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport, said:
“Bremen is an important business and manufacturing hub with a rich history and the new services operated by British Airways franchise partner SUN-AIR are a natural addition to London City Airport, making it the fifth German city to join our route network.”
“With London City Airport’s rapid connections to central London and key business districts such as Canary Wharf, the new Bremen route offers speed and convenience for business travellers, so they can spend less time travelling to and from the airport and more time at the office or with loved ones.”
Manchester Airport’s Commercial Director, Stephen Turner, said:
“We’re delighted to see SUN-AIR launch daily flights to Bremen from Manchester Airport. We’re confident the route will prove hugely popular with the 22 million people in our catchment area who need access to this German city.”
The Bremen to London City route will have 10 weekly return flights, while the Bremen to Manchester will operate 11 weekly rotations.
Both routes will be operated by a 32-seater Dornier 328 aircraft with full in-flight service.
