For the summer season, airBaltic will launch two new direct routes linking Frankfurt and Dortmund with Germany's island of Usedom in the Baltic Sea, marking the first time the airline will offer direct flights between destinations both of which are outside of the Baltic States.
Christophe Viatte, the airline's Chief Commercial Officer said: “The opening of these new routes linking Frankfurt and Dortmund with Usedom Island is an important occasion for airBaltic, as it paves the way for our expansion into the Baltic Sea region.
Usedom, sometimes called Sonneninsel or 'Sunny Island' is a popular German holiday destination, with its airport at the town of Heringsdorf.
The island itself has both German and Polish parts, as the border passes through the territory .
The services commence from May 9 using Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. A check-in fee will not apply on these flights and passengers will be offered a complimentary drink, such as water/tea/coffee, and snack while on board.
The fares will start at 149 EUR on the Dortmund – Heringsdorf route, and at 159 EUR on the Frankfurt – Heringsdorf route.
