airberlin is steadily moving forward with its growth strategy for the US and increasing the frequency of flights on its routes from New York to Berlin and Dusseldorf and from Miami and Ft. Myers to Dusseldorf for the 2013 winter schedule .


“The USA is a very popular destination for our guests from Germany and Europe. We are responding to rising demand and, following the increase in the frequency of flights offered on the current summer schedule, we are also expanding our winter timetable to and from the USA. Our guests will thus have a wider choice of departure times to travel to and from North America during the winter season,” Paul Gregorowitsch, Chief Commercial Officer at airberlin, said.


One additional flight per week is now available for booking from New York to Berlin and an extra three flights a week are available to Dusseldorf. On the routes from Miami and Ft. Myers to Dusseldorf an additional flight per week has been added for each destination. Therefore this winter, airberlin is offering daily flights from Miami and New York to Dusseldorf all year round for the first time – and in the summer there are up to two flights a day from New York. The winter schedule starts on November 1st, 2013 and ends on April 30th, 2014.


airberlin operates flights from a total of five destinations within the US: Chicago, Ft Myers, Los Angeles, Miami and New York. And with its oneworld® partner, American Airlines, guests can easily connect to airberlin’s key gateways from an additional 59 cities from all over the U.S. offering seamless connections to Germany and beyond.

airberlin is one of Europe’s leading airlines and flies to 150 destinations in 40 countries. The second largest airline in Germany carried more than 33 million passengers in 2012. airberlin offers a global route network through its strategic partnership with Etihad Airways, which has a 29.21% share in airberlin, and through membership of the oneworld airline alliance. The airline with the award-winning service operates codeshare flights worldwide with 14 airlines.
