The FINANCIAL — German low-cost carrier, Eurowings, has announced it will launch flights from Birmingham to Berlin.
The new flight will operate twice weekly on Fridays and Sundays from 1st December 2017 until 7th January 2018 catering for the Christmas market and New Year city break seekers.
All services are planned with an A320 aircraft configured to 180 seats. Flights are scheduled to arrive from Berlin at 1420 and depart Birmingham at 1500, according to Birmingham Airport.
William Pearson, Aviation Director for Birmingham Airport, said: “It’s fantastic to see Eurowings expanding its list of routes from Birmingham Airport to cater for the popular festive market.
“Berlin is a great city with world renowned museums, architecture, entertainment venues, nightlife and a cosmopolitan culture. We are sure these flights will be very popular with those passengers seeking a city break around the festive season.”
Eurowings is headquartered in Cologne and serves a network of domestic and European destinations as well as some long-haul routes. From Birmingham it already operates flights to Vienna and Salzburg.
Ivan Orec, Network Development & Airport Relations Manager for Eurowings, said: “We know how popular traditional German markets are around Christmas time and Berlin has one of the world’s best. It’s also a fantastic city to be in to celebrate the New Year with lots going on outdoors as well as great nightlife to enjoy.
“These flights are running for one month and so we urge passengers to book early as we expect seats to sell quickly.”
