Lots of new European winter destinations / Non-stop flights to Bangkok with LTU / Wide range of offers
Starting with the winter flight schedule on 29 October 2007, Berlin Airports will be offering even more connections, particularly within Europe. Berlin Airports is also adding LTU's new long-haul flight to Bangkok to its flight schedule. With the new destinations, flights will be operated to a total of 124 destinations in 46 countries in the winter season.

"Berlin Airports is intensifying its route network: the new winter flight schedule offers attractive new destinations in the sun such as Bangkok and Cairo and new and interesting winter sports destinations such as Innsbruck, Lyon and Nyköping in Sweden", says Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Airports. "Taking a look at the air transportation market this winter, it's clear to see that smaller airports such as Leipzig and Dresden are having to accept clear losses in their route networks in the course of consolidating the low-cost market, while large locations such as Berlin are strengthening their position."

The new connections from Berlin-Tegel:

Starting on 2 November 2007, LTU will be operating three non-stop flights a week to the Thai capital Bangkok, departing on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. LTU will also be operating weekly instead of fortnightly flights to the Caribbean. The airline will be taking off every Wednesday for Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and every Tuesday for Varadero on the island of Cuba. LTU's Caribbean flights will be completely relocated from Berlin-Schoenefeld to Berlin-Tegel for the winter flight schedule.

The Italian airline Air One has been operating a daily flight to Rome-Fiumicino since 1 October 2007.

Starting on 7 December 2007, TUIfly will be operating new flights to Innsbruck. The German low-cost airline will fly twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, to the German alpine paradise. The ski region Innsbruck is one of the best winter sports centres in the Alps. As of 2 November 2007, TUIfly will also be operating new flights to Cairo on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Starting on 14 January 2008, Lufthansa will be operating two flights a day to London City Airport. London City Airport is directly connected to the Docklands Light Railway, which takes passengers right into the city centre in just a short time.

SunExpress is also operating new flights in the winter flight schedule from Berlin-Tegel to Antalya and Izmir, flying three times a week to Antalya on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays and twice a week to Izmir on Mondays and Thursdays. SunExpress will continue to operate five flights a week from Berlin-Schoenefeld to Antalya.

The new connections from Berlin-Schoenefeld:

Starting on 29 October 2007, the British low-cost airline easyJet will be operating one flight a day to Brussels and Lyon respectively.

Rynair already started operating daily flights to Stockholm-Skavsta on 10 October 2007. Stockholm-Skavsta Airport is situated 100 kilometres to the south of Stockholm and seven kilometres north-west of Nyköping.

All flights can also be booked via www.viaberlin.com, the portal of Berlin Airports for modern travelling from, via and to Berlin. Just a few clicks is all it takes to put together and book flights. Additional offers such as flight connection insurance, transfer services and cultural and event tips on Berlin round off the offer.
