airberlin: London Gatwick added as destination from February
Wednesday 17, November 2010
Gatwick will soon be airberlin’s second airport in London after Stansted. From 7th February 2011 airberlin will be linking Hanover and Nuremberg with the airport to the south of London.
The number of weekly services from both German airports to London will remain unchanged. From February until October 2011 inclusive airberlin’s red and white aircraft will consequently be taking off twice a day from Nuremberg to Gatwick Monday to Friday and once a day on Sunday. From Hanover, the regional capital of Lower Saxony, passengers will also have a choice of two flights a day, six days a week (one flight on Saturday).
Gatwick airport has excellent public transport connections. The journey from the airport to London’s city centre takes around 45 minutes. The direct flights from Düsseldorf, Münster/Osnabrück and Paderborn to London Stansted are not affected by the change of airport and continue to be available.
The flights from Hanover and Nuremberg to London Gatwick can now be booked online (airberlin.com), by calling the airline’s Service Centre any time and through travel agents. Fares start at 39 euros one way, including taxes, charges and topbonus miles, but excluding aviation tax.
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.
