Destinations include Mallorca and Crete
For the first time since the Coronavirus outbreak grounded all flights from Eelde the Asser Courant is reporting that planes will once again be taking to the sky from Drenthe.
Carrier Transavia previously suspended flights to and from Groningen Airport because of the Coronavirus. In July and August, though, it will again be possible to fly to Mallorca (Spain) and Crete (Greece(. It is not yet known whether that period will be extended further.
Jonas van Dorp of Groningen Airport Eelde is hopeful that the flights will be extended from September to Las Palmas (Gran Canaria). “However, it remains possible that when restrictions due to the Coronavirus are tightened again, changes in flight schedules will have to be made again.”
The outbreak has had major financial consequences for Eelde. It is not yet clear how big the loss will be, but the airport has appealed for support from the emergency fund set up by the Dutch government.
