airberlin flies non-stop from Berlin to New York
Friday 24, September 2010
With the start of the summer schedule in May 2011, airberlin will be offering four weekly non-stop services between Berlin and New York.
"airberlin will be strengthening its position in Berlin in the long term with the new route. The non-stop flight from Berlin to New York is another important step, both in view of the opening of the new BBI airport and airberlin's full membership of the oneworld® aviation alliance, which is planned for the start of 2012. The increase in the number of flights operated from Düsseldorf is a further key element in preparation of becoming a full member of oneworld®. By working with our partner, American Airlines, we can link our hubs on both sides of the Atlantic and achieve a major increase in our services using codeshare flights," said Joachim Hunold, CEO airberlin, in New York this evening.
The new service is interesting both for holidaymakers and business travellers. There are feeder flights from various German and other European cities. From New York there are connecting codeshare flights to various American Airlines destinations.
At the same time airberlin will be increasing the number of non-stop flights it operates between Düsseldorf and New York. Instead of being offered five flights a week, airberlin passengers from Düsseldorf will have a choice of daily flights to the USA’s largest city from summer 2011 onwards. The flights to New York are already available for booking. One-way fares start at 219 euros and include taxes, charges and topbonus miles (excluding aviation tax) and can be booked online (airberlin.com).
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.
