Airberlin (airberlin.com) (Berlin) on June 5 started flying to Kaliningrad three times a week. This new route establishes the only nonstop service between Berlin (Tegel) and Germany and the Russian exclave on the Baltic.
Kaliningrad is the seaport and the administrative center of Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian exclave located between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea. The territory, the northern part of the former East Prussia, borders on NATO and EU members Poland and Lithuania, and is geographically separated from the rest of Russia.
The new service will be operated with Bombardier DHC-8-402s (Q400s) operated by LGW.
