Convenient and efficient flight connections throughout Europe via the new viaberlin.com service

17.01.2006
A new and innovative service from Berlin Airports / Optimized stopovers and inter-airport transfers
Berlin Airports today inaugurated a new and innovative platform, www.viaberlin.com, which is a repository of information on efficient and convenient low-cost European flight connections via Berlin. The available routes include Cracow to Reykjavik, Tallinn to Cologne and many more – in all instances via the ever fascinating cosmopolitan city of Berlin. Viaberlin.com provides “intelligent” route information for all possible connections via Berlin within a defined time period.

The viaberlin.com Web site is currently avail-able in German and English. Russian and Po-lish will be added next month, and Spanish and French versions are in the works.

"Viaberlin.com will open a new market for us. The market demand exists – and it promises to generate appreciable revenue," said Berlin Air-ports Managing Director Dieter Johannsen-Roth. “This service will also play a major role for other airports in the future.”

Convenient flight connections via the smart-travel service

Passengers have the option to take out a flight connection insurance via Elvia Travel Insur-ance. If a passenger misses their connection because their inbound flight is late, the insuran-ce covers the cost of a new ticket, as well as accommodations near the airport in the event the passenger has to spend the night in a hotel.

German Transfer provides optimally convenient transfer services between the three German airports, thus allowing for stress-free transfers. The shuttle bus charges a fixed rate, irrespecti-ve of the number of persons involved.

Convenient stopovers via the smartstop service

Berlin Airports, in cooperation with Berlin’s tour-ist information bureau BTM, now offers a con-venient new stopover service known as smart-stop. This service offers sightseeing, cultural activities and shopping excursions for specific stopover periods and visitor interests.

Berlin Airports offer Smart cars at low prices (in cooperation with Sixt rent a car), and the air-ports have also arranged for special overnight rates with various hotels.
