One million passengers from Berlin-Tegel with AIR FRANCE09.12.2013
Passenger Uwe Kaapke from Berlin was caught totally unaware on his way to Bangkok via Paris. Before checking in, the airline surprised him with an Economy voucher for a long-haul flight of his choice. This is a first for AIR FRANCE KLM: Berlin-Tegel is the only German airport at which the holding company has reached the million mark in terms of annual passenger volume.
The German capital and AIR FRANCE KLM have a long and rich history. The first scheduled flights on the Paris–Berlin route were launched in 1926 by the predecessor company Air France and now make up five a day. As of the 2014 summer flight schedule, flights to Marseilles will also be resumed. Together with the five daily KLM flights to Amsterdam, the holding company is now the fourth-busiest airline operating out of Berlin-Tegel.
AIR FRANCE KLM has also been celebrating its 80th anniversary since October 2013. To mark this special occasion, the airline has put together special anniversary packs for its customers. For example, passengers can buy special anniversary items. Furthermore, an Airbus A380 and an Airbus A320 painted in special anniversary livery will be in service until October 2014. AIR FRANCE KLM serves 243 destinations in 103 states worldwide and transports 77 million passengers every year.
