Air Berlin launches long-haul flights in 2008
Air Berlin, the third largest low-cost airline in Europe, is introducing long-haul flights to Shanghai and Beijing in China next May.
Air Berlin currently operates low fare flights from Stansted to Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hanover, Munich, Munster, Nuremberg and Paderborn in Germany. With links to other Air Berlin hubs, passengers from Stansted will have access to over 350 flights a day at more than 90 airports in the UK, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Scandinavia, Italy, Hungary, Switzerland, and North Africa.
It has been a successful year for Air Berlin. The airline was named Best Short Haul Business Airline in the Business Travel World Awards, and won a Daily Telegraph Readers Award as well as being highly commended in the best leisure airline category at the Travel Trade Gazette Awards. Air Berlin has also been named as a finalist in the European Business Awards 2008.
"Air Berlin has clearly created its own segment in the market by offering a full quality service at low fares. It is encouraging that consumers and travel professionals alike have awarded and commended Air Berlin for these excellent levels. We look forward to offering the same award-winning service on our new long-haul network from the UK in 2008," said Air Berlin's country manager for the UK and Ireland, Titus Johnson.
Air Berlin also offers charter flights from Stansted to Athens, Fort Myers in Florida, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Milan, New York JFK, Nice, Palma, Rome, Sylt, Vienna and Zurich.
