Following on from the successful daily service launched by Laudamotion between Milan Bergamo Airport and Vienna Airport at the start of the winter season – the carrier has further committed to the Italian gateway by commencing a second route from Stuttgart Airport.
Launched today, the carrier will initially operate six weekly flights on the route – increasing the frequency to nine weekly flights during the height of the summer season –as the new service introduces 50,000 additional seats to the Milan Bergamo market in its summer 2019 schedule.
SACBO is the operator of Milan Bergamo and director of commercial aviation, Giacomo Cattaneo said: “Around 180,000 passengers travel annually between Milan and Stuttgart, so it is great that Laudamotion has introduced this service from the German city to Milan Bergamo in order to further grow this robust market.
“Milan Bergamo already supports year-round, non-stop flights to Berlin, Cologne Bonn, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Nuremberg in Germany, plus a summer seasonal service to Bremen, so it is great that we can now offer an additional destination to what is our third largest international market.”
Along with Stuttgart, Laudamotion has also confirmed that it will further commit to Milan Bergamo later this year, as from 31 March it will introduce a third route to the airport.
It will commence a twice-weekly service from Düsseldorf, with flights planned to operate on Wednesdays and Sundays. Overall 680,000 seats will be on offer between Milan Bergamo and Germany in summer 2019, representing a 6.2 per cent increase versus last summer.
