With the 300th aircraft delivery 10 of the 18 aircraft based in Berlin-Tegel are now easyJet planes, alongside the aircraft that have been wet leased to support the flying schedule from Tegel during the transition period until November 2018.

The new route between Berlin-Tegel and Cologne/Bonn is part of easyJet´s biggest summer schedule for Berlin with more than 16 million seats flying over the summer season.
