Just over a month after Tegel's move to the new Berlin-Brandenburg airport, the Lufthansa Group is showing positive results. The relocation of the airlines went according to plan and the operational procedures at BER work excellently with the current low traffic volume. Lufthansa Group airlines operate from Pier North in Terminal 1, a short walk from the Lufthansa Lounge and WorldShop's new flagship store.
The start of the flight operations also went very smoothly. Currently, the Group's airlines operate approximately 38 percent of all flights operated on BER. Of the total of 1.700 departures and arrivals in November, about 650 were operated by the Lufthansa Group - more than 400 flights more than the second largest operating airline and more than 500 flights more than the third largest at this airport .
Eurowings in particular has positioned itself strongly in the weak environment caused by the crisis: when comparing individual airlines of the Lufthansa Group, with around 300 BER connections in November, this Lufthansa subsidiary climbed to the top. Eurowings flies at least three times a day to Cologne / Bonn, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart. Another focus of the airline is on flights to the Canary Islands, and the flight schedules for December highlight this trend. By the end of the year, Eurowings alone will have operated more than 1.200 flights to and from BER.
“The airlines of the Lufthansa Group reliably and safely connect the German capital with the world. We are proud that people in Berlin and Brandenburg have put their trust in us for decades. We will continue to be a partner of the region in the future and will expand our services from Berlin as soon as possible after the crisis is over because we know the desire to travel is great, ”said Harry Hohmeister, member of the Board of Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Chief Commercial Officer Passenger Airlines.
Since September, the Lufthansa Group has been the market leader in Berlin. Five Group airlines currently fly to BER (Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings). Air Dolomiti is also adding BER to its summer flight schedule. Lufthansa reports this on their website.
