Air Berlin: Ski equipment carried free of charge
Tuesday 17, August 2010
Air Berlin, Germany’s second largest airline, and its Austria partner NIKI are offering skiers and snowboarders an even better service this winter.
Six kilograms of cabin baggage and 20 kilograms of checked baggage generally make up the standard allowance. But now all passengers going on a winter sports holiday can take their skis and poles or their snowboards with them free of charge on Air Berlin and NIKI flights, whether their destination is Salzburg, Innsbruck, Graz, Linz, Vienna, Klagenfurt, Munich or Zurich. This offer applies to flights throughout the winter schedule, in other words all through the ski season.
This additional service is now available for booking by telephoning the airline’s Service Centre on 01805 737 800 (€ 0.14/min.). Passengers must notify the airline at least 48 hours prior to departure that they will be taking ski equipment with them.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
