New Germanwings Flights From Berlin (TXL)

Wed Mar 12, 2003 4:33 am

My girlfriend just told me that Germanwings will start new flights out of Berlin-Tegel, here are the new routes:

TXL-IST: daily
TXL-BCN: daily
TXL-MXP: daily
TXL-STN: daily
TXL-ZRH: twice daily
TXL-FCO: daily
TXL-CDG: twice daily

Sorry, but she didn`t know any further details.

Good to see another STN flight and 2 to CDG!T9 at CDG can get quite busy on Saturdays with all the North African charters so will be good for some photos in June and July.

Very cool to see 4U expanding. If those two ZRH dailies come true i'll be even happier.

Is that confirmed, will TXL be Germanwings second Hub? There's not further information on their website yet.

Hi Tobi,

my girlfriend is working for Germanwings, she heard it from a colleague this evening so I believe it is true.

Hi Patrick,

it's great for Berlin, but I would love to see them fly from/into Hamburg... HAM-CGN is not enough  Smile

You are correct Tobi, HAM is one of the German airports which needs definitely more no-frills airlines. I can not complain here in the Ruhr Area, we have AB at MGL, DTM and DUS, 4U and ST at CGN and UK at DUS but you guys at HAM can still drive to LBC to fly with FR for cheap fares  Smile/happy/getting dizzy.

By the way, can you recommend a visit to HAM for spotting? I have never been to the airport (only to the Reeperbahn) but I am planning a one day trip in Spring or in Summer.

AC330,

my girlfriend told me that the flights will start from May 1st but I do not know if it is true. There is still no information on the Germanwings website but I am sure that the new routes will be announced soon.

4U/EW CEO said last Friday that the 2nd base will be announced within "8 to 14 days", so expect the official announcement between this Friday and the following week. The flight data has already been uploaded into the Berlin airport database.

Hi Patrick,

yes, Hamburg is a good airport for spotting, even at the obeservation deck, if right runway is in use.

Let me know when you're planning to visit HAM, maybe we can meet, if you like  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Good news indeed, and even better since it's TXL, which is 10 minutes by taxi from home, and not that Godforsaken Schoenefeld!
I know it's only VfB but I like it!

Certainly no secret that Germanwings was looking at Tegel for the 2nd base. Looks like it's all going ahead.

Great news!

That will bring the total of ZRH-TXL flights to 11 daily departures operated by four airlines. Not a bad competition situation...

3 low cost carriers now operate Berlin - Stansted.... BloodBath... even LHR - TXL only supports one carrier! Once Ryanair takes over from Buzz it will get even worse.

You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!
