10 Years of Berlin to Beijing

Congratulations: Hainan Airlines has connected Berlin with Beijing for ten years. On 5 September 2008, the first aircraft of the Chinese airline took off from Berlin-Tegel towards the Chinese capital. Since then, passenger numbers have continually risen. Around 700,000 passengers and 50,000 tonnes of cargo have been carried and transported in the last ten years. In 2017 the figure of 100,000 passengers per year was surpassed for the first time. Around 3,700 flights have taken place in all. In summer the service is operated five times a week, in winter three times a week.

The Berlin-Beijing connection is equally interesting for tourists and business people from both regions. The demand for direct connections from Berlin to China as well as from China to Berlin is high. Peking, as the Chinese capital is also called, is the cultural, economic and political centre of the country and extremely rich in sights. Visitors of the city should therefore bring one thing above all with them: time – and lots of it. Around 3,000 years of culture and history want to be seen and explored.

Moreover, the rapidly growing metropolis of Beijing is of great economic interest for many businesses. For Berlin, China is now the second most important trading partner, and by far the most important market in Asia. This is another reason why it is advantageous for our capital city to maintain an active city partnership with Beijing, that will celebrate its 25th anniversary next April.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary, the airport company and Hainan Airlines have agreed on several measures to optimise their services. Among other things, this includes improving information for Chinese passengers through additional signs at the terminal in the Chinese language, improving service quality during check-in as well as developing further joint products with the aim of further improving the travel experience and simplifying the stay at Berlin-Tegel Airport.
