Germanwings has been flying from Berlin since 2003 and has grown to become the fourth-largest airline at the city’s airports. In July 2013, the “new Germanwings” launched with a new product and brand strategy. Passengers have a choice of three different price categories: “Best” is the top-of-the range option, “Smart” is the standard rate with additional services and “Basic” is a low-cost no-frills service. The “new Germanwings” is gradually taking over Lufthansa’s decentral European services from airports outside of the hubs in Frankfurt and Munich.
