“Today, Friday, is one of the peak travel days in the entire year with some 460 flights handled at Tegel and 160 takeoffs and landings in Schoenefeld,” says Dr Rainer Schwarz, Berlin Airports’ CEO. “Berlin Airports offer something for every taste, including sunshine destinations such as the Caribbean, Kenya, Bangkok and the Canary Islands as well as winter sports resorts, for instance in the Alps.”
Heading for snow
And for skiers unwilling to miss out on city life while enjoying a holiday in the snow, Lyon is the perfect destination. That’s because the UNESCO World Heritage City close to the Alps is famous not only for its culinary scene, but is also situated close to a number of ski areas. Easyjet has been flying once a day to Lyon from Berlin-Schoenefeld since the end of October.
