With Lufthansa five times a week to New York: In-depth discussions about long-haul routes with airlines

27.09.2017

As of 8th November, Lufthansa will fly five times a week from Berlin to New York. The route will run between Berlin-Tegel and John F. Kennedy International Airport every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday respectively. Flights of the German carrier will take off from Berlin at 17:35 and land in New York at 21:35, local time. When flying to Berlin, passengers take off at 23:20, local time in New York-JFK and land, the following day, at 12:15 in Berlin. The flight duration is around 7 ½ hours and is flown with the Airbus A330-300. Passengers are able to choose between seats in Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy.


"I am pleased that Lufthansa will be flying from Berlin to the USA again, for the first time since 2001. The frequency of the route to New York demonstrates how important long-haul routes from Berlin already are. Despite the limited opportunities that we have here in Tegel, we are also currently involved in in-depth conversations with other airlines in order to expand what we have to offer in terms of long-haul flights“, said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. "In order to be able to offer a long-haul network in the future, that the economy, politics and citizens of the metropolitan region of Berlin-Brandenburg need, we are building the Single-Airport BER. Because only from BER can we handle flights better and more quickly and utilise the full potential of long-haul flying."
