Germanwings Leaving STR?!

Tue Feb 03, 2004 8:08 pm

Does anyone know why they are discontinuing all flights out of STR as of March 27 (justplanes is reporting) ?
I thought they had planned to extend their network out of STR with DRS for example. Are the loads that low?
...if this is true, is Germanwings not as successful as expected? And bad news for 'my' airport...

I cannot find it on justplanes.com !!! Maybe it was a canard...
According to http://www.germanwings.com, STR is open for sale from Thursday.

Additionally, have a look at
http://www12.germanwings.com/de/10/flugplan.online.php?zeit=04-03-22&x=0&y=7
Flights on Sunday, March 28th (1st day of summer schedule) are still displayed (incl. DRS).

...just goes to show that one should not rely on justplanes.com to get reliable information. I have given up on that site a long time ago.

I saw that story earlier today too - just looked at justplanes.com again and the story has definitely disappeared - wonder what their source was?
I don't like signatures...

According to germanwings.com, VIE will go double daily, FCO and BUD daily, LIS 4x per week. PRG and MAD will be discontinued, although IMO Madrid was the most profitable route ex STR.
