easyJet has put close to one million seats on sale for flights operating to and from Berlin Tegel between January 5 and March 24, 2018.
The new routes announced include four German domestic routes connecting Berlin with Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart.
easyJet will also add 15 international destinations, including flights up to 5 times a day to key cities like Vienna and Zurich, as well as regular connections to popular leisure destinations like Palma de Mallorca and Catania.
The airline already transports more than 5.3 million people to and from Berlin each year through its existing base at Berlin Schoenefeld which opened in 2004, now serving 51 routes.
easyJet flights to and from Berlin Tegel Airport remain subject to regulatory approval of easyJet’s transaction with Airberlin. easyJet signed an agreement with Airberlin to acquire part of its operations at Berlin Tegel Airport in October this year.
In order to enable the launch of the winter flight program as soon as possible, easyJet will use some wet lease aircraft alongside easyJet planes to operate flights from Tegel.
The airline plans to announce additional new routes from Tegel for the summer season starting on March 25, 2018 in due course.
