New passenger record in Berlin27.12.2013
Shortly before the turn of the year, the 26-millionth passenger was welcomed at Berlin’s airports today, 27 December 2013. Paola Mora was just about to fly with airberlin from Berlin Tegel to New York JFK to celebrate her birthday and New Year’s Eve there when she checked in as the 26-millionth passenger. To celebrate the occasion, airberlin is giving the 25-year-old a USA flight voucher for two people. Last year’s mark of 25.3 million passengers has thus been surpassed by a clear margin. At the same time, Berlin’s airports are growing more strongly than the market for the eleventh time in succession. With its Schönefeld and Tegel airports, Berlin is the only major air transport location in Germany to experience passenger growth of around four per cent this year.
airberlin will be continuing to increase its flight frequency to the USA in the 2014 summer flight schedule. In May 2014, the airline will offer the successful Berlin Tegel to New York JFK route ten times a week non-stop and the Berlin Tegel to Chicago connection daily non-stop.
