British Airways Spreads Wings to Cosmopolitan Cologne


It may be the height of summer but Christmas markets and pints of Kölsch are on the horizon as British Airways launches a brand-new route to the German city of Cologne.

The airline has announced it will be adding a new four-per-week service from Gatwick airport to the winter break hotspot, located on both sides of the Rhine, from November 16, 2018.

During the winter season customers can fly with British Airways on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, offering holidaymakers the perfect excuse to visit one of the 7 Christmas markets.

Cologne (Köln), Germany’s fourth largest city, offers a plethora of attractions led by its famous cathedral whose filigree twin spires dominate the skyline.

Known for its art, history and architecture, visitors can immerse themselves in the avant-garde before enjoying a dish of the local speciality Himmel un Ääd, mashed potato with apple sauce and sausage.

For those with a sweeter tooth, a trip to the famous chocolate museum is a must before spending the evening at one of the many beer halls experiencing the liberal Rhinelander spirit, or soaking up the party atmosphere in one of the countless bars or restaurants.

The highlight of the Cologne calendar is the six-day street carnival known as “Crazy Days” when normal life is suspended as the city celebrates in a colourful spectacle of eclectic costumes.

Activities marking the “Crazy Days” include dancing, sequins, parades and parties where more than one million revellers take to the streets for the largest carnival in Europe.

The addition of the Cologne route follows the introduction of the Gatwick to Las Vegas flight which operates thrice-weekly all year round.

British Airways is also increasing the number of flights it operates to other holiday destinations from Gatwick this winter including Palma in Mallorca, Turin, Lanzarote, Malaga and Geneva.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
