All the signs are indicating growth for easyJet in Berlin: the airline was today able to welcome its 10-millionth passenger to Schoenefeld Airport. John Kohlsaat, CEO of easyJet Germany, and Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Airports, welcomed the 10-millionth passenger on arrival in Berlin.

easyJet also stationed its ninth aircraft, an Airbus A319, in Schoenefeld in March, recently relocated its 120-strong international customer service team to Potsdam and started expanding its check-in area at the easyJet terminal in Schoenefeld. Plans are also in place to add three new destinations to its summer 2008 flight schedule: Heraklion, Thessaloniki and Ibiza.

"easyJet and Berlin are a joint success story. We are incredibly proud to be able to welcome our 10-millionth passenger to Schoenfeld on what is only our fourth anniversary", says John Kohlsaat, CEO of easyJet Germany. "And our success story is set to continue: as of 2011, BBI will open up huge potential for the region. easyJet would like to make a significant contribution to the success of BBI. As a home carrier, we aim to create even more jobs at BBI and offer the people of Berlin and Brandenburg an even wider selection of low-cost flights."

Dr. Rainer Schwarz, CEO of Berlin Airports: "easyJet is our biggest customer in Schoenefeld. Every other passenger in Schoenefeld now flies with easyJet. We are delighted that the airline is planning to continue to focus and expand on the Berlin market. This is a strong signal for the new Capital Airport BBI and the entire region."

All flights can also be booked via www.easyJet.com and 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.
