The city of Münster is the sustainable energy and green capital of Germany and is a popular location for both science and technology conferences. In addition, Münster is at the heart of one of Germany’s strongest performing economic areas, with a large number of expanding SMEs based locally. As well as this, Osnabruck and Dortmund are both key university cities within easy reach of the airport, with strong science and IT based economies.
Christine Ourmières, CityJet CEO, said: “Münster is at the forefront of hosting conferences and events for the green technologies industry. By starting services to Münster, CityJet is expanding its appeal to the UK MiCE industry as well as facilitating a new trade corridor for the rapidly expanding British green technologies and renewable energies market.
“There is also strong inbound demand for a direct route to the heart of London from Münster given the large number of SMEs based in the airport’s catchment area. In addition, our new route will open up the cultural and historic heart of the Westphalia region of Germany to families and couples looking for a relaxed weekend break.”
The historic city of Münster has stayed true to its medieval past, with ancient houses, stunning squares and imposing churches. Being the bicycle capital of Germany, Münster is a cyclist’s paradise with two bicycles to every resident and a car free ring road around the city allowing easy access to its hip, cosmopolitan social scene.
Likewise Osnabruck has plenty to offer leisure visitors, brimming with culture there are an array of museums and historic sights to explore. Not to mention a bustling city centre with plenty of popular drinking spots and upmarket restaurants to choose from.
As well as adding a new route to its network, CityJet is also more than doubling flights from London City to Brive for the summer holiday period. In addition to the return flights on Fridays and Sundays, CityJet has added flights on Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays until the 29th August as a result of high demand for travel to the Dordogne.
