CityJet, the airline that flies from the heart of London, will launch two new routes this summer into Germany - Dresden and Paderborn from April 2013.  
 
Flights to Dresden will commence from 1 April 2013 and services to Paderborn will commence on 22 April 2013. Bookable from today at www.londoncityairport.com  fares include all taxes and charges. 
CityJet will operate 6-times weekly services to both destinations with schedules designed to benefit a significant inbound market looking for easy access to the heart of London and the City.  In addition, London-based travellers will be able to access the historic North Rhine area (Paderborn) and Saxony in eastern Germany (Dresden) as CityJet is providing the only direct link to these two new destinations.

Christine Ourmières, CityJet CEO, says: “There is a strong inbound demand for direct routes to the heart of London from Germany both from a business as well as a leisure perspective.   By expanding our German network to four destinations, including Munster and Nuremberg, we are answering that demand at a time when Germany continues to remain Europe’s economic powerhouse.” 
 
“Paderborn will strengthen our offering out of Westphalia whilst our route in Dresden opens up a whole new region to British-based families and couples looking for a relaxed weekend break or business travellers seeking easy access to the Silicon Valley of East Germany.”
 
Dresden, on the banks of the River Elbe in Saxony, east Germany is host to a vast array of museums and stunning historic architecture including the Elbe Castle, Villa Quarter, the Semper Opera House and the world-famous Frauenkirche.  The ancient is juxtaposed with an extravagant array of modern architecture which gives Dresden a unique feel.   The city is also home to a number of world-renowned performing arts companies based across its abundance of theatres, galleries and museums. Dresden is also home to the semiconductor industry of Germany as well as strong pharmaceutical and engineering industries. 
 
The city of Paderborn, in the North Rhine-Westphalia area of Germany, is situated at the mouth of the Pader river in the heart of Germany.  With over 1200 years of history that includes a medieval cathedral and university the city loves its traditional festivals and events. It also plays home to over 10,000 members of the British armed forces and their families. In addition it has a large student population and has a number of international companies based in the city including Wincor Nixdorf, Benteler, Fujitsu and Siemens.
