Route to launch in mid-September six times a week
Czech Airlines says it will launch a new connection between Gothenburg and Hamburg in mid-September, with regular flights between the second largest cities of Sweden and Germany.
ATR 72 aircraft will be used to operate the connection six times a week, and ongoing flights to Prague will connect to the route.
CSA stresses that the schedule of the new route on working days is defined to suit the flow of business travellers and tourists heading for one-day visits or shopping. Departures from Gothenburg to Hamburg are planned in the early morning, with return flights on the same day in the evening.
The weekend schedule will allow Swedish tourists to spend two days in Hamburg, with flights departing from Gothenburg on Saturday morning and returning on Sunday evening.
The first flight will take off from Gothenburg-Landvetter on September 16 and depart every day except Sunday. The return flights from Hamburg will take place daily except Saturday. The same schedule will apply in the 2014-15 winter season.
“There are no direct flights between Gothenburg and Hamburg, although there is potential and demand for this service on both the Swedish and German markets,” said Jozef Sinčák, Czech Airlines’ vice chairman of the board responsible for sales and marketing. “This is why, based on thorough business analyses, we have decided to add a new flight between Gothenburg and Hamburg to our flight schedule. Because the existing link from Hamburg to Prague connects to these flights, we will also be able to offer another new product on the Swedish market – connections between Gothenburg and Prague with a stopover in Hamburg.”
