Tour operator FTI has launched Cologne Bonn’s new connection to Dubai Al Maktoum today. The leading German travel group will offer weekly flights to the UAE flown on Condor’s 275-seat 757-300s. Complimenting FTI’s existing portfolio within Cologne Bonn’s route network, the latest link to the Middle East joins established charter routes to Salalah in Oman and Hurghada in Egypt.
“We are very pleased about FTI‘s extended programme at our airport. Tour operators play a big part in the growth of our airport and thanks to their commitment, passengers travel well cared-for every day. Now they can fly to Dubai, a city which is currently one of the most exciting destinations in the world. FTI enriches our winter timetable with this special destination,” says Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board.
As a new destination from Cologne Bonn, the new flight to Dubai will result in the airport offering 127 destinations during this winter season. Alongside FTI’s twice-weekly service to the Sultanate of Oman and four times weekly link to Egypt’s Red Sea coast, the tour operator’s programme includes the classic sun destinations of Spain, Greece and Turkey.
