The low-cost airline Lufthansa has been active since May 1 of this year, with the airline establishing a new base at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport.
Eurowings has chosen to base a total of three aircraft at the airport. In turn, the airline estimates that 100 jobs have been created in the region.
The airline expects an increase in the number of passengers, as passengers can connect from Berlin to various destinations.
- Cologne / Bonn
- Palma de Mallorca
- Gran Canaria
Other destinations are also part of the network. The airline plans to increase its services during the summer months to holiday destinations in Corsica, Croatia, Egypt and Austria.
Berlin appears to be working well for Eurowings, as the airline sees demand increasing, with an average increase of 35% in bookings on all routes from Berlin. Sightseeing flights to Mallorca (up to 80%) and Crete are particularly popular.
Anyone would think people want a vacation after about a year.
Eurowings has been very busy outside Berlin – even during the lockdown, with the airline making more than 1,600 flights from the airport.
Base Berlin may be just what the airline needs, with demand for the summer growing – sure, many people will want to get away from it all and relax as restrictions ease.
For Eurowings it is possible to build the Berlin base over time (during the years Berlin Brandenburg is under construction). Meanwhile, summer could make or break the base.
It will be interesting to see how the base develops in the longer term.
