airberlin: First nonstop flights to Kaliningrad
Starting today, airberlin will fly to Kaliningrad three times per week, thus establishing the only nonstop connection from Berlin and Germany to the Russian exclave and centre of culture and commerce on the Baltic.
At the opening ceremony at Berlin-Tegel this morning, airberlin CEO Hartmut Mehdorn said: "The economic relations between Germany and Russia continue to grow and this means an increased demand for air travel, especially in the market sector of business travel."
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday - and also on Saturday starting 15th September - airberlin passengers can fly nonstop to the Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic coast.
Via the Berlin hub, connections are available from and to Dusseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt and Munich as well as to Vienna, Milan, Paris or Scandinavia.
Flights via the airberlin hub Palma de Mallorca are also possible, thus connecting many departure airports in Spain to Kaliningrad.
