Brussels Airlines takes off from Tegel in 4 days22.10.2008
“The closure of Tempelhof Airport is a very emotional moment for all of us, but at the same time we are also delighted to have found an excellent solution at Tegel for our passengers, thanks to our good working relationship with Berlin Airports. We are pleased to continue our efficient and fast services seamlessly from Tegel Airport,” said Helmut Gläser, Country Manager of Brussels Airlines in Germany.
”We are very happy to welcome Brussels Airlines to Tegel as from 26 October,” said Dr. Rainer Schwarz, Chief Executive Officer of Berlin Airports. “Together with Schoenefeld, Berlin’s busiest airport, Tegel, will be providing sufficient capacities for smooth, punctual and efficient flight operations until the new capital airport BBI opens in 2011.”
Brussels Airlines launches its services at Tegel Airport on 26 October 2008 and will be departing from Terminal D. The airline will have a dedicated check-in counter (No. 90/91) in the terminal, making the check-in process swifter and easier for passengers.
Brussels Airlines’ ticket office will also be moving from Tempelhof to Tegel; as from 26 October 2008, it will be located in the Main Terminal (Inner Ring) at Position 13, thus putting ticket office and check-in desk is close proximity to each other and making departure even faster and more convenient.
In addition to the five daily flights from Tegel, the airline also flies from Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich, covering a dense network and taking passengers to more than 70 destinations in Europe, Africa and India via Brussels.
The strategic alliance between Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines – pending approval from the regulatory authorities – means that Germany is set to become an even more important market for Brussels Airlines.
