For summer 2014, airberlin Germany’s second largest airline is increasing the frequency of its flights to the United States, continuing its policy of expanding its USA service.
From May, airberlin, a EACCNY member, will be offering three additional flights from Berlin to New York (JFK) compared with summer 2013, making a total of ten flights a week from the German capital to the US metropolis. There will also be ten flights a week to the Big Apple from Dusseldorf, as there were last summer. This means that the airline will be flying 20 times a week non-stop from Germany to John F. Kennedy airport, and also offering up to two connections a day to New York (JFK) from numerous places in Germany, Austria and Switzerland via Berlin and Dusseldorf.
“Already this winter we have extended our flight schedule to the USA and now we are continuing with this strategy for summer 2013. The focus is on providing good connecting services for our guests from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Our improved flight schedule to the USA will give both business travellers and holidaymakers more flexibility in choosing their flights and planning their trips,” said Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO airberlin.
From Munich, Nuremberg, Vienna and Zurich, for example, there will then be up to two flights a day departing at midday and in the late afternoon to the Big Apple. There will be new connecting services for airberlin flight guests from Bucharest, Graz, Kaliningrad, Madrid, Rome and Salzburg, who will be able to travel to New York (JFK) for the first time via the hub of Berlin due to the increased frequency of flights.
airberlin will also be increasing its flights to Chicago next summer, so from May 2014 there will be a non-stop flight every day from Berlin to the city on Lake Michigan.
In summer 2014, travellers will be able to fly non-stop with airberlin from Germany to a total of five destinations in the USA: Chicago, Fort Myers, Los Angeles, Miami and New York (JFK). Within the United States, through its codeshare agreement with its oneworld® partner American Airlines, airberlin is also able to offer flights to about 60 additional destinations, so that nearly every region of the USA is within reach for airberlin travellers. For example, travellers from Berlin can conveniently fly via Chicago to Denver, New Orleans or Seattle.
