airberlin is expanding its route network competencies in Poland and from 23rd March 2013 will operate up to three flights a day from Berlin to Warsaw. The Polish capital is already the third destination in Poland for Germany‘s second largest airline. In addition airberlin will increase the number of flights from Berlin to Krakow, also from 23rd March 2013, thereby operating a total of up to 48 flights a week from Berlin to its European neighbour.
At today’s press conference in Warsaw, Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO airberlin, said: “We have strategically revised our network for the summer of 2013. The adjustments and new introductions on the flight schedule are in line with our drive for increased efficiency. In the future we will concentrate even more on our core business areas,
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, Chief Strategy and Network Planning Officer airberlin, added: “Starting on 23rd March 2013, we will be the carrier with the largest number of flights on offer from Berlin to Warsaw, operating up to three flights day. At the same time we will also increase the number of flights to Krakow. We continue to focus on our guests from Poland. In the current year around 40,000 flight guests from Poland have flown with us. Travellers from Poland have excellent connections to our worldwide flight network via our hub in Berlin. One example is Chicago, since the new nonstop scheduled flights to Chicago will start at the same time as the connection between Warsaw and Berlin.”
Prof. Dr. Rainer Schwarz, Chief Executive Officer of Berlin Brandenburg Airport: “I am delighted to be in Warsaw today. From March 2013, airberlin will be integrating Warsaw in its route network, and thus further expanding its hub in Berlin. The new service improves the connections between the Polish and the German capital, and at the same time provides additional transfer options for Polish passengers in Berlin, particularly for long-haul flights. Poland is a key market for us, a market with vast future potential and we acknowledge this in many ways; for example by providing our Polish-speaking passengers with information in their native language on our website or on fliers.”
On Mondays to Fridays airberlin operates three flights a day from Berlin to Warsaw.
