Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) has announced the strengthening of its links to Germany, confirming Eurowings will be adding the airport’s fourth German destination this summer.

Beginning on May 5, Lufthansa’s low-cost carrier subsidiary will commence a weekly service from the capital city airport, Berlin Tegel.

Enhancing Cornwall’s connections to Europe, Eurowings’ seasonal operation to Germany’s largest city will launch the same day as the carrier’s new route to Stuttgart, adding to its already established service to Düsseldorf and Ryanair’s link to Frankfurt Hahn.

Airport MD, Al Titterington, said: “As the second largest country market after the UK from our airport, another link to Germany will provide an essential boost to the development of our route network within a proven strong market.

“Our inbound leisure routes are particularly popular with German tourists so we’re very happy to announce another connection from this increasingly significant country market. Building on the success of its Dusseldorf route, it’s fantastic to confirm Eurowings will be adding two new destinations this summer.”
