As the end of the year approaches, we have to acknowledge that 2022 was a great year for aviation, saw some fantastic feats and a lot of new airlines gaining ground and winning new customers.
As 2023 is just around the corner, we thought we should look at some of the most promising operators to launch their services next year. You can check our articles by clicking here for more news about the current year.
Liliair, a new airline in Central Europe
Liliair is set to launch its new flights in April 2023. The airline is managed by “Flite”, a Maltese operator and will have its base in Klagenfurt, Austria. An investment of 27 million euros is expected to connect Klagenfurt to multiple destinations in Germany initially, then expanding further around Europe.
The airline will use two Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft with a capacity of 90 passengers. We expect three weekly flights to Munich, three to Hamburg and 12 to Frankfurt. Kay Kratky, a member of the advisory board of Lilihill Industries, plans big for the airline: “We want to connect Carinthia, Klagenfurt and the Alps-Adriatic region with the world”.
Marabu, a “Condor” partner airline
Marabu will be the newest leisure carrier in Germany, with plans to link the whole country with destinations along the Mediterranean coast. Its fleet consists of six Airbus A320 aircraft to start with and will further expand if needed. The airline will operate under an Estonian AOC, however, it will have its base in Germany.
The new carrier will serve the cities of Hamburg and Munich with destinations including Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Egypt. It will offer exciting flights to beautiful places such as the Canary Islands, Sardinia or the famous Egyptian resorts. You can already book your flight through their website.
