A city in the south of Germany will once again be directly reachable from Manchester Airport from next year. Flights to Stuttgart will be launched from the airport in May 2024. 

German airline Eurowings will operate flights four days a week. These will head over to the German city on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. 

Stuttgart joins a list of over 200 destinations connected to Manchester. When flights start on May 6 2024, it will become the eighth German city to have a direct connection with Manchester Airport- it joins Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Dusseldorf and Freiburg on this list. 

The German city is known for its role in the car manufacturing industry. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche both being headquartered there, and its university is a world leader in automotive engineering. 

The city has a wide range of bars and restaurants, and is home to a top flight football team. In the autumn, it hosts its ‘VolksFest’, which is the city’s version of Munich’s Oktoberfest. It is an event well worth visiting, and one which from next year will be made much easier.

Chris Woodroofe, Managing Director of Manchester Airport said: "We are thrilled to be adding another new destination to what is already the most extensive route network of any UK airport outside London, giving our passengers even more choice when planning their next trip. Our data shows that Stuttgart is one of the most in-demand destinations that is not already served, so it’s fantastic news that Eurowings will step in and meet that demand.”
