First Flight Corendon FDH-AYT 14.04.2019
On April 14th 2019 Corendon launched their new route from Friedrichshafen to Antalya, Turkey replacing Germania which went bust early 2019. I was again invited by the airport to take pictures of the ceremony on the apron.
At about 10:15 local time Corendon's 737-800 TC-TJU touched down at Friedrichshafen. After a water salute the airport's management, Corendon's management and crew celebrated the new route.
