From July 4, easyJet will increase its weekly flights to Berlin as it expands service from Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport with two extra weekly flights (Wednesday and Saturday) to Berlin-Tegel, Germany’s fourth busiest airport, which counted over 20.46 million passengers last year.
In December 2017, easyJet confirmed “the acquisition of part of bankrupt German carrier Air Berlin in a deal worth €40 million”, which has allowed the low-cost carrier to take control of Air Berlin’s operations at Berlin-Tegel airport, named after the German pioneer of aviation, Otto Lilienthal.
Currently, easyJet, which flew 81.6 million passengers in 2017 – an increase of 9.6 per cent over the previous year, flies five times a week (daily from March) to Berlin-Schönefeld airport, the German capital’s secondary international airport located 18 km southeast of Berlin.
Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport ended its 7th consecutive year of growth at +7.1%, serving 13.3 million passengers in 2017, 114 direct destinations and 56 scheduled airlines serving 40 countries.
Outside Paris, it is also the only French airport to offer daily flights to New York, Doha and Dubai.
Nice-Berlin fares with easyJet start from €39.
