Berlin’s status as the must-visit city in Europe just keeps getting stronger and stronger. This week Air Berlin, the city’s flag carrier (well, sort-off) said it will fly directly between Berlin and Los Angeles three times a week. That takes their number of flights to America to 10 a week.
The company had this to say about its new route:
airberlin CEO Hartmut Mehdorn said about the inaugural flight this morning at Berlin-Tegel: “Los Angeles is a major route expansion for our Berlin hub. Attractive destinations such as Los Angeles make our hub an engine of growth for airberlin, for tourism and the economy.” He added: “With this offer, we particularly want to attract connecting passengers from our German and European route network.”
