Cologne Bonn Base for Freebird Airlines Europe
Routes Focussing on European Holiday Islands
Cologne Bonn is the new base for the charter airline Freebird Airlines Europe. Since this week, an A320 plane has been based at Cologne Bonn Airport by the European subsidiary of the Turkish Freebird Airlines, which was founded in 2018. From next Saturday, 15 May, Freebird Airlines Europe will be flying to holiday islands in Greece and Spain; the first destination on Saturday morning will be Heraklion (HER) on Crete.
“Freebird offers holidaymakers a varied schedule, flying to some of the most beautiful European islands. We are very much looking forward to the future cooperation and are pleased to welcome Freebird Airlines Europe to Cologne Bonn Airport,” said Johan Vanneste, President & CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH.
In future, Freebird Airlines Europe will fly from Cologne Bonn to the Greek islands of Crete (Heraklion, HER), Kos (KGS) and Rhodes (RHO) twice a week. The Airbus 320, with a capacity of 180 passengers, will fly to the Canary Islands Fuerteventura (FUE), Gran Canaria (LPA) and Tenerife (TFS) with the same frequency. There are also plans to include Hurghada (HRG), the popular holiday destination on the Red Sea, in the schedule from September.
