airberlin flies non-stop from Berlin to New York
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," 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.
