Adria Airways will connect Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport with the European cities of Zurich, Vienna and London from October 28. For this purpose, the airline is stationing a Saab 2000 aircraft at PAD. A total of 18 flights are planned every week. Adria Airways is a member of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline alliance, and offers connections all over the world in cooperation with its 27 partner airlines.
As of the winter schedule, Switzerland's largest airport in Zurich is served by Adria Airways with eleven weekly connections out of Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport. The capitals Vienna and London are served four and three times a week respectively. Within the British metropolis, Southend Airport will be approached as it has its own train station with excellent connections to the city center every 20 minutes and short travel times of less than an hour.
"It is of great importance and achievement that Adria Airways opens a new base in Paderborn and starts connecting this economically strong region to three major European cities. We are excited to increase our footprint in the German market by adding Paderborn as our fifth destination in Germany. Today our passengers are given even more choice and a wider spread of possibilities to travel," says Christian Schneider, Chief Commercial Officer of Adria Airways.
"We welcome the renowned airline Adria Airways at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport, our 'Heimathafen'. Broadbased surveys of companies in our region showed that Zurich, Vienna and London are the three most demanded European destinations. We are very pleased that Adria Airways will meet the demand by servicing these European metropolises. Along with the connections to Frankfurt and Munich, we are now connected to the four hubs of the Lufthansa Group," says Dr. Marc Cezanne, Managing Director of Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport.
District Administrator Manfred Müller, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the airport, points out: "By offering these three new destinations, we are taking a big step towards our goal of connecting our region directly to the most important European metropolises. It is now up to the numerous enterprises as well as private travelers within our large catchment area to leverage these new destinations being offered at our airport."
