Easyjet Berlin becomes true. The British low-cost airline is now Berlin’s largest with more than 16 million seats flying over the year and, as part of its new schedule, it has added five new routes from Tegel Airport which Berliners voted to keep open last year despite government ambitions to close it.
New routes and new links. So, finally, Berlin airports have a bright future
Easyjet Berlin is a charming possibility. The launch of new routes from Berlin also coincided with Easyjet’s expansion of its world wide program and Easyjet has been one of the main beneficiaries of the collapse of Air Berlin last year, scooping up about 25 of its aircraft.
In return, Easyjet is becoming the first home airline in the city of Berlin. The easyJet chief executive, Johan Lundgren, said: “There’s no doubt that the growth potential is in Europe. The UK will always be a critical market, but we have more to go at in the European mainland.”
The airline has been at Berlin’s Schönefeld airport since 2004 but started operations at the city’s Tegel facilities after taking over parts of Air Berlin in January. And what plans for the new incoming ghost airport BER for Easyjet?
