On the back of a year which saw Cologne Bonn Airport record more than double the European average in passenger growth traffic, the German airport has kick-started 2017 with the announcement of its first new airline partner of the year. Launching its inaugural route from Cologne Bonn, Stobart Air, operated by Flybe will be commencing a six times weekly service to London Southend from 1 May.


Commenting on the new route development, Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board, Cologne Bonn Airport, said: “We are delighted to add Southend as another direct connection to the cosmopolitan city of London. The new route will prove just as attractive to business travellers as it will to the weekend tourist.”

Facing no direct competition on the airport pair, Flybe’s new link to London Southend will strengthen the UK’s position as Cologne Bonn’s fifth largest country market served from the gateway. Utilising the airline’s 118-seat E195s, Flybe’s new service means that Cologne Bonn will now offer over 7,600 weekly seats to London, joining the airport’s existing links to London Heathrow and London Stansted
