On 14 November 2016, an airberlin flight will head from Dusseldorf to Geneva for the first time. airberlin will connect Dusseldorf with the second largest city in Switzerland up to three times a day and increase the frequency of its flights from Berlin and Dusseldorf to Zurich. This winter airberlin will be flying from Dusseldorf to Zurich 36 times a week, thus increasing its offer on this route by 16 per cent compared to last year. In its winter schedule airberlin will have 37 weekly flights from Berlin to Zurich, three times more than last year. Vienna will continue to be connected to Zurich with 23 flights per week. airberlin also flies to numerous tourist destinations from Zurich.

“We are systematically expanding our Berlin and Dusseldorf hubs. Switzerland is an important core market for airberlin. With the inclusion of Geneva in our network, we offer prestigious companies in the region a connection to our international route network via Dusseldorf. At the same time, Geneva is an attractive destination for holiday travellers from North Rhine Westphalia and the Netherlands”, said airberlin Chief Executive Officer Stefan Pichler.

The new flight offer connects Geneva to the airberlin intercontinental route network: the United States, Abu Dhabi and the Caribbean can be reached with a short stop in Dusseldorf. Furthermore, within Europe, travellers from Geneva will also benefit from short transfer times in Dusseldorf for flights to Hamburg, Dresden, Stockholm and Copenhagen as well as to tourist destinations such as Ponta Delgada in the Azores, Keflavik in Iceland, or the flower island of Madeira.

Orlando is a new destination in the airline’s route network from Dusseldorf. From Berlin, the two Californian destinations of San Francisco and Los Angeles will be added to the programme with three and four flights a week, respectively.

All long-haul Airbus A330-200s are equipped with a FullFlat Business Class. airberlin offers worldwide lounge access through its Etihad Airways Partner and the oneworld® partner airlines.
