The Danish Low-cost Airline Sterling to Fly from Tegel this Summer

The Danish low-cost airline Sterling, which connects Berlin-Tempelhof with Copenhagen twice daily, today officially announced at a joint press conference with the Berlin Airports that the airline would be flying to Copenhagen from Tegel from 25 March, when the summer flight timetable takes effect.
Carole Arnaud-Battandier, international marketing manager with Sterling: “We are very happy with the Berlin flights. Berlin has established itself as a trend destination in our route network. We had more than 80,000 passengers travelling with us on this route in 2006.“

Airport chief Dr Rainer Schwarz: “Now that the decision of the Higher Administrative Court has clarified that Tempelhof Airport is definitely to close at the end of October 2008, we expect that other airlines will follow Sterling’s example and also switch before then. That would benefit all concerned.”

Sterling Airlines emerged in 2005 from the amalgamation of Sterling European and Maersk Air and is registered in Copenhagen. The fleet consists exclusively of Boeing 737s. Sterling is owned by the Icelandic group FL.
