BALTIMORE, MD – MetroAir announced today plans to fly to Hamburg and Amsterdam from Baltimore-Washington beginning July 1st, pending government approval.
Both cities will receive daily service on board Boeing 757-200 (HAM) and Airbus A330-200 (AMS) aircraft. Amsterdam and Hamburg will become MetroAir’s 22nd and 23rd European destinations. Flights to Amsterdam and Hamburg will depart Baltimore-Washington in the evening and return in the early afternoon the next day to maximize network connectivity.

Hamburg, Germany’s second largest city, is located on the River Elbe and is home to Europe’s second largest port.

Over 120,000 businesses call Hamburg home, including Berenberg Bank and Airbus Germany. Airbus’ Hamburg facility is the final assembly location of all Airbus A32x aircraft.
Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands and another European financial powerhouse. Named for the river on which the city was founded, Amsterdam is the cultural capital of the Netherlands and is home to seven of the world’s 500 largest companies. Over 5 million tourists flock to Amsterdam each year to visit sites such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, and to ride through the city’s historic canal system.
