German Travelers Choosing Crete for Autumn Holidays

Chania, Crete

All the more German travelers are choosing Crete for autumn vacations, as more airlines are scheduling direct flights from German airports to the Greek islands up until November, the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) said on Friday.

The organization’s announcement came after hosting a press trip last week for German journalists that arrived on a direct flight to Chania from Nuremberg, Germany, by Corendon Airlines. The direct air connection between Nuremberg and Chania was launched in July and may possibly continue service until November due to high demand. The route was initially planned to operate until October.

Nuremberg International Airport, the second largest in Bavaria after Munich Airport, is directly connected to six Greek destinations, namely Thessaloniki, Corfu, Kos, Heraklion, Chania and Rhodes.

Corendon Airlines flies to the six destinations from a total of 16 airports in Germany, including Nuremberg.
