More summer destinations, more to experience
With the beginning of the new summer flight schedule, Berlin will be even better connected to the rest of the world. As of 25 March 2007, four new airlines – Clickair, Belavia, Jet2.com and DirectFly – will be operating flights from Berlin Airports to nine new destinations. There will also be an additional 12 connections to popular holiday destinations. Flights will thus be operated from Berlin to a total of 152 destinations in 49 countries.

The airlines in Berlin have registered a total of 133,794 take-offs and landings for the summer flight schedule period. This represents a year-on-year increase in the number of aircraft movements of more than 4 per cent. "By expanding its flight offerings, Berlin Airports has managed to establish itself amongst the top German commercial airports", says Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Airports. "Both the Berlin tourist industry and the people of Berlin are sure to benefit from this offer in the summer of 2007."

City breaks to destinations such as Lisbon, Barcelona or Venice are currently very popular. Flights to popular holiday resorts such as the Black Sea coast or the Greek island Mykonos are also attracting holidaymakers to the sun. Those who prefer to discover the North can now take advantage of the direct flights on offer from Berlin to the Norwegian city Stavanger and Gothenburg in Sweden.
