Return from Lisbon: Condor, Eurowings, Sundair and Tuifly fly Aida Nova airlift

For more than 2800 travelers, the cruise with the Aida Nova ended prematurely in Lisbon due to Corona. Airlines are now bringing tourists back to Germany with charter flights.

Actually, the journey should continue towards the Canary Islands and only end on January 5th. However, on December 31, 2021, crew members on board the cruise ship Aida Nova tested positive for the corona virus. The 337 meter long and 42 meter wide ship with more than 2800 guests on board could not leave the port of Lisbon.

First, the German operator Aida Cruises wanted to deploy new staff. But with more than 50 crew members testing positive, the company finally canceled the continuation of the trip on January 2nd. The return flight of the guests to Germany, Austria and Switzerland has already been organized, the group said.
