The summer flight schedule is getting underway at the capital's airport
142 destinations in Europe, Africa, Asia, and America directly accessible from BER

With the start of summer, the summer flight schedule at Berlin Brandenburg Airport is set to begin on Sunday, 26 March. 142 destinations will be directly connected to the capital in the period from the end of March to the end of October. In comparison to 2022, the new flight schedule includes direct flights from BER to Djerba in Tunisia by Nouvelair, Billund in Denmark by Ryanair, Graz in Austria by Eurowings, and Verona in Italy and Lyon in France by Volotea. In May, another connection to the USA will start with a non-stop flight to the capital, Washington D.C. Over the summer period, 49 countries can be reached direct from BER thanks to flights offered by 64 airlines.

With more flights to popular destinations and the addition of new European and intercontinental services to the flight schedule, the attractiveness of BER as a transport hub is growing. In May, the focus is on connections to the west with the USA: United Airlines is set to launch its direct capital-to-capital service between BER and Washington/Dulles on May 26. On that same day, Delta Air Lines will start its service to New York JFK. This means that from the end of May, three airlines – NORSE Atlantic Airways, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines – will be flying to the Big Apple. After the United States, intercontinental connections to Egypt (Hurghada, Cairo, Marsa Alam, Sharm-el-Sheikh), Qatar (Doha), Tunisia (Tunis, Monastir, Djerba), and Singapore are expected to be the most in demand this summer. In addition, Hainan Airlines will also further increase its direct flights to Beijing, with a second weekly flight to the Chinese capital planned from April.

There will also be additional connections within Europe in the summer flight schedule, as well as attractive new destinations for cultural trips, city breaks, or beach holidays. Eurowings will fly to 30 destinations this summer. These include, for example, the Mediterranean destinations Ibiza, Nice, and Alicante to the south as well as Gothenburg, Helsinki, and Copenhagen to the north. To the east, the airline FLYONE is planning flights to the capital of the Republic of Moldova, Chişinău, from mid-May. In addition, Ryanair will also be offering the connection to Banja Luka, launched last winter, in the 2023 summer flight schedule. The Serbian metropolis of Belgrade is a new destination in Wizz Air's flight schedule. The Hungarian airline is also adding a new connection to Iaşi in Romania. The most popular destinations within Europe are the southern European countries of Spain, Turkey, Italy, and France, as well as the United Kingdom.

Aletta von Massenbach, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: "With 142 destinations, the summer timetable at BER offers travellers more flights to destinations that are in high demand as well as additional connections to fascinating cities. We are also pleased to see that Eurowings is doubling its services to 30 destinations and the increased connection to North America."
