  • Successful inaugural flight to Gran Canaria
  • 6 winter- and 13 summer destinations
  • Daily flights to Palma de Mallorca available to book now

The aircraft with the green and white livery are once again taking off from Berlin-Tegel airport. After a three year absence, the independent German airline Germania has returned to the airport in north Berlin, holding an inaugural flight to Gran Canaria. Germania now offers flights from Tegel in addition to Berlin-Schönefeld, giving Berlin’s inhabitants an even greater choice of flights to sunny destinations. The airline will continue to utilise its hangar on the south side of the city, ensuring quick aircraft maintenance.

New routes from Tegel include 6 destinations in Egypt, Israel and Spain. In May, another 7 destinations will be added to the schedule, summing up to 13. Moreover, the Canary Islands, Faro and Madeira/Funchal in Portugal, will be served, along with Marsa Alam in Egypt. Several Greek islands like Kos, Corfu, Crete and Rhodes, will also be included. In addition, Germania will provide a daily connection from summer 2018 to Palma de Mallorca from Berlin-Tegel.

We are looking forward to establishing our quality product in this market. The market demand is quite different in Tegel compared to Schönefeld, which will grow together as one once the main airport BER has opened,” says Claus Altenburg, Germania’s Sales Director, explaining the airline’s double presence in Berlin.

Welcome back to Berlin Tegel,” said Prof. Dr. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Berlin Brandenburg Airport GmbH. “The reopening of the Tegel base, as well as the stationing of further aircraft at both Berlin locations combined with the expansion of the flights offered, strengthen the aviation location Berlin-Brandenburg. We wish Germania many happy flights and look forward to new, attractive flight offers in the future.”

BERLIN – 1st November 2017
