Best Time to Book a Flight to Hamburg

If you're not picky about when you fly to Hamburg, you'll get the best airfare prices during the off-season. Use Skyscanner's Cheapest Month Search Tool to search prices for the entire year and pin down the cheapest month to fly. However, if the weather conditions in the city are a concern, you'll want to avoid the winter months as the weather is often below freezing and snowfall is a possibility.

Generally, the best weather conditions in Hamburg occur in the spring and fall months. Both seasons have mild to warm temperatures and average rainfall. The summer months are also nice and sunny, but the humidity rises dramatically and rainfall is much more common from June to August.

Airport and Airline Options in Hamburg

With over 16 million passengers served per year, Hamburg Airport (HAM) is easily the busiest airport in the state. It is also one of the top five busiest airports in all of Germany. The airport consists of two passenger terminals, with a large Airport Plaza in the middle. The Plaza is the spot for shopping, with over forty stores available in various shopping categories. The airport is a hub for Eurowings, Germanwings, Ryanair, and EasyJet, four low-cost carriers with dozens of flight routes.

To fly from Canada to Hamburg, you will, unfortunately, be subject to at least one layover. Generally, the layover will be in a big European city like London, Paris, or Brussels. The layover could also be in a close domestic location like Frankfurt or Munich. Once you've arrived at the airport, the city centre is less than half an hour away by taxi.

Unfortunately, there are really no other airports in the immediate Hamburg area. Lubeck Airport (LBC) used to be the state's secondary airport, with Ryanair and Wizz Air as the two main airlines. However, the airport filed for bankruptcy in 2014 and the last scheduled flights occurred in April of 2016. As the airport building is still standing, there is hope that it will be purchased and reopened by a new buyer in the coming years. The last airport in the area, Hamburg Finkenwerder Airport (XFW) is open exclusively for the use of Airbus employees.
