New passenger record in Berlin / For the first time, more than 26 million passengers

27.12.2013

The strong growth continues: shortly before the turn of the year, the 26-millionth passenger was welcomed today at Berlin’s airports. Paola Mora was just about to fly with airberlin from Berlin Tegel to New York JFK to cele-brate her birthday and spend New Year’s Eve there when she checked in as the 26-millionth passenger. To celebrate the occasion, airberlin is giving the 25-year-old a USA flight voucher for two people. Last year’s mark of 25.3 million passengers has thus been surpassed by a clear margin. At the same time, Berlin’s airports are growing more strongly than the market for the eleventh time in succession.

“26 million passengers in Berlin is a new record. With its Schönefeld and Tegel airports, Berlin is the only major air transport location in Germany to experience passenger growth of around four per cent this year,” says Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH.

“Berlin Tegel Airport is airberlin’s home. Our first flight took off here in 1979, and we have our largest international hub here. The keen interest of passengers here in Berlin shows the appeal of this air transport location and the necessity for swift expansion of the airport infrastructure,” says Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO of airberlin.

airberlin will be continuing to increase its flight frequency to the USA in the 2014 summer flight schedule. In May 2014, the airline will offer the successful Berlin Tegel to New York JFK route ten times a week non-stop and the Berlin Tegel to Chicago connection daily non-stop.
