Air Berlin, Germany’s second largest airline, is switching its flights from Bergamo Orio al Serio to Milan Malpensa. From 16th June 25 flights a week will be taking off from terminal 1 of the largest airport in northern Italy, heading for Berlin-Tegel and Düsseldorf. These two hubs offer connections to ten other German cities, as well as major European destinations, such as Gothenburg, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Moscow.
"The move to Malpensa will make Air Berlin flights from Italy even more attractive for people travelling on business and for pleasure," said Marco Fontana, Country Manager Italy at Air Berlin. "The airport has excellent transport links. The train journey to the city centre takes just 40 minutes."
Air Berlin offers its passengers a full service at competitive prices. Direct flights to Germany are available from just 29 euros one way. The fare includes a free onboard snack and soft drinks, as well as newspapers and magazines.
Air Berlin has been flying to Milan since 2002. The number of passengers has more than doubled since then. The airline carried over 300,000 passengers in 2007.
