Fabulous ski slopes throughout Europe
Skiing regions are popular with airlines and travellers alike for the 2021/2022 winter timetable. Three completely new destinations in Hamburg’s route network are perfect starting points for nearby snowfields. From 16 December 2021, the new airline Sky Alps is operating two flights per week to Bolzano. Not far from the capital of the Italian province of South Tyrol are the world-famous Dolomites, with numerous skiing regions promising a wide variety of slopes for beginners and advanced skiers alike. The Sky Alps airline, new to Hamburg Airport, describes itself as “Ambassador of the Alps” and specialises in scheduled flights from major European cities to Bolzano in South Tyrol.
For those who prefer a skiing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the Alps, the slopes of Bosnia and Herzegovina offer more space. From 16 December, Wizz Air is operating two flights per week to Sarajevo, with a service to Banja Luka beginning just one day later. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a genuine insider tip for winter sports lovers. The country offers a fantastic mountainous landscape with guaranteed snow and low prices.
Alongside these three new destinations, the airport also has flights to other great starting points for a holiday on the slopes: Salzburg, Innsbruck, Munich, Zürich, Vienna and Oslo. Europe’s most important skiing regions are just a few hours’ flight from Hamburg.
Increased frequency to Dubai – and the return of the A380
Right on time for the start of the 2021/22 winter timetable, the Emirates A380 flagship is returning to Hamburg Airport. As demand increases, Emirates can once again offer more capacity from Hamburg.

More choice on existing routes
As soon as the temperatures in the north begin to fall, a lot of northern Germans are drawn to the warmer weather elsewhere. Countries guaranteeing temperatures up to 25 degrees even in winter are especially popular. Alongside Dubai, the Canary Islands are once again amongst the trending destinations from Hamburg Airport for the 2021/22 winter, and Egypt too attracts sun-lovers to the famed land of pyramids and pharaohs all year round. Air Cairo has provided an additional option in the choice of services to Hurghada since 1 October.

Turkey, with its capital of Istanbul, is also a popular destination for city trips in the winter months. This winter, Turkish Airlines has a wide range of flights on offer to Istanbul (IST) and the city’s second airport, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW).
