Press release from: Air Berlin

This weekend is when schools break up in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. airberlin is expecting around 75,000 passengers at Düsseldorf airport alone. With a choice of about 500 flights, Germany’s second largest airline is ready to cater for the start of the summer holidays. Friday is always the busiest day of the week during the holiday period.

airberlin had already increased its choice of flights to 80 non-stop destinations in the spring, ready for the summer schedule. In addition to the six long-haul aircraft already in operation, a seventh plane, an Airbus A330-200, was available in time for the summer holidays, thereby increasing the number of aircraft stationed in Düsseldorf to 25. During the first six months of the year airberlin was able to achieve a nine per cent increase in passenger volume at Düsseldorf airport in comparison with the first half of 2010. The schedule was also restructured and optimised. In June the proportion of transit passengers using the Düsseldorf hub was 16 per cent, while the highest proportion recorded on any one day was 20 per cent. airberlin was able to offer 4,400 connecting flights each week.

Palma de Mallorca, Greece and the Canary Isles are among the favourite holiday destinations this summer. Italian resorts, especially the new destinations of Verona and Florence, are also very popular. As far as long-haul flights are concerned, the top destinations include New York, Los Angeles, Cancun and Varadero.

airberlin is Germany’s second largest airline. The company currently has over 8,900 employees. In 2010 alone airberlin received more than 10 awards for service and quality. The fleet encompasses 170 aircraft with an average age of five years. Consequently airberlin operates one of the youngest fleets in Europe. The airline’s modern aircraft are extremely fuel-efficient and so provide a lasting contribution to the reduction of aviation emissions. airberlin is one of the major airlines in Europe and flies to 163 destinations in 39 countries. In 2010 the airline carried 33.6 million passengers. airberlin has now signed a declaration which will allow the airline to join oneworld®, the worldwide aviation alliance. Full membership is planned for the start of 2012. airberlin offers codeshare flights with oneworld members American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and S7.
