How To Get To Rimini?

Mon Jun 10, 2013 6:26 pm

I need to get from MUC or FRA to RMI but it seems as if nobody flies there, any suggestions?
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Besides a good number of seasonal services, and none out of FRA or MUC, not much is happening at RMI apparently with less than a million passengers last year.

I went there via Rome on Darwin (a SAAB 2000 as well!) but I see that route seems to have stopped in May...

Rimini is a funny place, the majority of the tourists are either Italian or Russians.
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

From Germany, there are flights to Rimini from Karlsruhe (Ryanair), Nuremburg (airberlin), and Stuttgart (airberlin) - but not Frankfurt or Munich.

Given no flights to Rimini from, say, Milan and Rome, you could fly from Munich to Ancona, or Frankfurt or Munich to Bologna, with Ancona and Bologna about 1h 15m away by road (or look into trains).

I looked at that, and saw 450EUR return airport shuttle from Ancona.... granted I didn't look much further after that shock!

Thanks Madame I shall look into that.

Or just fly into Bologna, as suggested, and get the train - less than 1h to Rimini from Bologna.

There are also Air Berlin flights from Dusseldorf and Karlsruhe/Baden Baden, once a week, Sunday and Saturday respectively. These are fairly close to FRA.

Bologna is a nice little airport. Easy to get around, and they have a genuine Ferrari shop (the factory is nearby.) The autostrada (motorway, freeway) to Rimini is right at the airport exit.

Interesting to see that little has changed in more than 50 years.
In 1960 my family and I vent to Rimini for a summer holiday and we flew into Milano and took the train from there. On the return trip we flew an Alitalia Viscount to Milano and flew further on from there.

Apart from the fact that the websites for Italian railways I have looked at (including Mme C's link) are garbage to use, the shortest trip I have found from Bologna to Misano is around 2 hours.

Taking into account the ID flights on SA and ZED on LH this is the plan I could find that best fits our requirements:

JNB-FRA 10.9.13 SA260 19:30 06:10
FRA-BLQ 11.9.13 LH282 08:00 09:20
Bologna Centrale - Misano Adriatico 11.9.13 Regionale Veloce 2069 10:35 12:46
Misano Adriatico - Bologna Centrale 16.9.13 Regionale 6505 09:06 11:14
BLQ-FRA 16.9.13 LH285 14:50 16:20
FRA-JNB 16.9.13 SA261 20:45 07:25

Flying to MUC isn't an option as SAA doesn't have a ZED agreement with Air Dolomiti.

Didn't realise you wouldn't be paying for your ticket and that SA doesn't have a ZED agreement with EN.

Misano

Given your earlier posts, I just assumed you were travelling to Rimini.

Well, "surprisingly" it´s not Ryanair to offer such a destination ex FKB.

Air Berlin got the contract with the local airport / tourism authority in Rimini ...
So, AB serves RMI during summer season from DUS / NUE / STR / FKB every saturday (Dash 8-400) and from TXL every sunday (Dash 8-400)

As the OP asked for "FRA or MUC" STR and NUE would fit well ~ half way between both airports.
Both STR and NUE are easily accessible from either Munich or Frankfurt by public transport (train/underground)
NUE being closer to MUC and STR closer to FRA (distance/travel time wise).

Schedule for Nuremberg: NUE - RMI - NUE 06.15-07.45 / 20.40-22.10

Schedule for Stuttgart: STR - RMI - STR 18.30-20.00 / 20.35-22.00

Maybe SA has an agreement with Ab ??? (even though AB is in "enemy territory /Oneworld" that doesn´t preclude them per se ...)
