Can anyone confirm that HLX are opening Cologne - BHX from May? If so are the rumours of Berlin and Hamburg also opening wishful thinking ?

Cheers

Have heard rumours too, but would have thought it as being quite unlikely with CVT only a few miles down the road.

HLX dropped CVT just after Germanwings started BHX so CVT shouldn't impact on this at all.

Confirmed. Service starts May 11th 5x weekly with F100 from Cologne.
The article mentions "connections" from HAM and TXL via CGN, but since HLX doesn't offer "real" connection flights I think that's just some kind of missinterpretation by the author of the (german) article at fvw.de

Flights are open for booking from February 7th (tomorrow)

Hmmm... Cunning - flights from the UK to Germany starting just before the World Cup! Or am I just being cynical? Big grin

Be interesting to see how this works from BHX. Flight timings aren't great late evening flights, although they are operating 5 days a week. It didnt work from Coventry, although timings there were even worse.

I'm sure it will send people into a frenzy over how comitted TUI are to Coventry. When the airport was sold they insisted they are comitted to CVT, but since then the rumour mills around BHX have been saying ThomsonFly and TUI are just about ready to pack up at CVT and move down the road...

Not sure about those rumour mills. There was an interview quite recently in Bham Evening Mail where TUI were not at all complimentory about BHX stating it was their most unwanted airport. Now it maybe this has stung the airport into improving relations but at the time it seemed that TUI were all for moving everything out of BHX if they could.

My guess for what it's worth is that HLX will offer the route througout the summer and then drop it, no coincidence that Cologne is a world cup venue.
