The Swiss regional airline Darwin Airline will connect Leipzig/Halle Airport with Paris and Amsterdam from 2 September onwards. This means that Leipzig/Halle is the first airport in Germany, from which Darwin Airline will operate scheduled services.

Non-stop to Paris and Amsterdam as often as twice a day
Darwin Airline will connect Leipzig/Halle Airport with the cities of Paris and Amsterdam daily from 2 September onwards. The airline will use a Saab 2000 aircraft with 50 seats. The international hubs of Paris Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam offer many connecting flights within the Air France-KLM global network of routes. Services to Paris and Amsterdam will operate twice a day on Mondays to Fridays, while there will be one daily service on Saturdays and Sundays. Darwin Airline will take off from Leipzig/Halle Airport 24 times a week in all.

"We're delighted to be the first German airport, from which Darwin Airline will operate scheduled flights. We've been able to attract an established partner in the shape of Darwin Airline, which not only has the expertise, but also the appropriate type of aircraft to develop the routes to Paris and Amsterdam in the long term," says Dierk Näther, Managing Director of Flughafen Leipzig/Halle GmbH.

"The opening of a new base in Leipzig is a logical development of our strategy to expand our presence as a regional carrier in the European market place. We're convinced that we've found exactly the right partner and market at Leipzig/Halle Airport," says Christian Schneider, a member of the Darwin Airline AG board of directors.

"The launch of the new services to Paris and Amsterdam enables the Central German region to draw closer to two more European centres of business and culture, which can be reached easily because of the high frequency of connections. The new services also offer outstanding connections to the attractive global network, which is operated from both Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol. Business and city break travellers will both benefit from this to the same degree," Markus Kopp, CEO of Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG, adds.

A return flight to Paris and Amsterdam is available for prices starting at EUR 199, including all taxes and airport fees. The services can be booked through any travel agent, on the Internet at or by phone on +49 3412242240.
