Cologne Bonn becomes new base for Freebird Airlines

The carrier is set to introduce mostly European holiday routes to its expanding schedule

Germany’s Cologne Bonn Airport is the new base for charter carrier, Freebird Airlines Europe.

Last week, the carrier began basing a single Airbus A320 at the hub.

On Saturday (May 15), the Turkish airline began flying to holiday islands in both Greece and Spain, with the first destination being Heraklion in Crete.

“Freebird offers holidaymakers a varied schedule, flying to some of the most beautiful European islands,” said Johan Vanneste, president and CEO of Flughafen Koln/Bonn GmbH. “We are very much looking forward to the future cooperation and are pleased to welcome Freebird Airlines Europe to Cologne Bonn Airport.”

Future routes include flights from the German hub to the Greek Islands of Crete and Rhodes, beginning twice a week. Other destinations include the Canary Islands Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, operating at the same frequency.

Additionally, the airline also plans to add Hurghada – located on the Red Sea coast – to its schedule from September.
