The German tour operator “Der Schmidt” is expanding the range of charter services at Braunschweig Airport. From autumn 2022, flights to Ras al Khaimah will be offered with Boeing 737-Max.
In the current summer period, the tour operator is focusing on proven destinations such as Rome, Sicily, Sardinia and Dubrovnik. Managing Director Philipp Cantauw explains: “The demand for these trips is huge again. Our customers appreciate the short distances and manageable size of the regional airports".
Due to the great popularity, new destinations will be added in the fall. In addition to the Greek Peloponnese, Crete and Paphos in Cyprus, the route to Dubai is non-stop for the first time. “A new generation of aircraft around the Boeing 737M allows us to fly to more distant destinations from airports that normally do not have long-distance runways. In this way, we can also serve these destinations non-stop, which are almost 7 hours away,” says Cantauw. The destination airport in the Emirates is Ras al Khaimah due to the short distances.
In 2022, a total of 8300 seats to ten destinations will be on sale. According to their own statements, they had never before had such an extensive charter program from Braunschweig. Boeing 737 aircraft with 189 seats are used. The airlines Tuifly and Smartwings act as flight partners this year.
