NUE??? Yes, come to NUE please. Nice modern terminal, fast link to the city center, no congestion, absolutely underserved with a huge potential.

Good news if they are making money on their flights already. I know for sure that I did not help them earn a cent yet so far...
If they manage to make money with the fairly expensive (high leasing rates)Airbuses than they might not consider downgrading to a cheaper model.

Good news.

But: We need a cheap carrier at FRA. Germany´s largest airport, only expensive flights. Not good.
Buzz gone, Dba long gone, where is the knight in shining armour to protect us from LH´s "pharmacy"-prices?

At least you guys around FRA have Frankfurt-Hahn and Ryanair...  Wink/being sarcastic
And if Roland can manage to build up the Transrapid link, then what else do you need?  Nuts

Well, Germanwings could use former Terminal B (not Terminal 2) at ZRH which will close down when the midfield opens in October this year ...

Swissgabe, why would Germanwings want to use Terminal B? As a low cost carrier, they're not keen on spending money for push-outs! Open parking positions is what they're looking for!

Terminal B southern stands (B32, B34, B36 and possibly B38) will probably be converted to open stand for self power taxi in and out (CRJ's, CR7's) while the northern stands (B31, B33, B35, B37) will be used for long term parking for SQ, MH, TG, SA, UL, etc.

Terminal B is already fully booked in this respect...

Zurich is out of the race !


According to the Reuters article (only in German), Germanwings wants to wait until the end of the year whether to open a base abroad (i.e. Zurich).

"We will open a base abroad as soon as Germanwings can earn money with that kind of business" (CEO Friedrich-Wilhelm Weitholz).
