It will be compulsory to wear face and nose masks on board Tuifly. We are currently working intensively on the creation of a flight plan for the restart.
After the forced Corona break, the holiday airline Tuifly wants to resume flight operations as soon as possible. An airline spokesman for Aviation.Direct is currently working on a concept for the restart: "This includes drawing up a flight plan and having the machines ready for use." Tuifly also wants to make it compulsory to wear a face mask: "You can only fly if you have one on." Tuifly heads for vacation destinations in Europe with 34 medium-haul Boeing 737 jets.
The airline, which belongs to Europe's largest travel group, is watching developments in the Mediterranean countries with great interest. "Since we operate as a tour operator, we can only fly once travel warnings have been removed." Spain's tourism minister announced at the beginning of the week that foreigners could go on holiday to the country again from July - without the obligation to self-quarantine for two weeks. It has not yet been decided when the global travel warning issued by the Federal Foreign Ministry will be suspended.
Long-distance start in winter still targeted
And Tuifly is also eagerly watching developments on another topic: The airline actually wants to get back into long-haul business from next winter. To this end, it is initially stationing two Boeing 787 “Dreamliners” at Düsseldorf Airport and has recently reserved growth options for other jets. But: Whether the date can be kept depends above all on which destinations can be approached again in intercontinental traffic.
