  • Published by Vedat
The summer holidays start in Berlin today, followed by Brandenburg tomorrow. School holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg mark the start of the peak travel season.
From city trips to beach holidays in Europe or throughout the world – Berlin offers the perfect destination for anyone.

High traffic volume as the holidays start

Similar to 2012, high traffic volumes are anticipated this year at Berlin's Schönefeld and Tegel Airports as the holidays kick off. Accordingly, around 2,600 flights are planned for approx. 315,000 passengers in the first weekend of the holidays, from Thursday to Sunday, with around 75% of this traffic being handled at Tegel.

Airlines and routes

66 airlines currently fly non-stop from Berlin to 159 destinations in 48 countries. Apart from a wide choice of long-haul routes (Abu Dhabi, Bejing, Chicago – now offered by airberlin, Doha, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Punta Cana, Ulan Bator and Varadero), there are also numerous connections to destinations within Europe. The summer flight schedule now also includes new links to Florence (Vueling Airlines), Warsaw (airberlin), Oslo (SAS), Sofia (easyJet), Edinburgh (easyJet), Kristiansand (FlyNonstop), Athens (Aegean Airlines) and London Southend (easyJet). Lufthansa will also be including Faro (from 19 June), Antalya (from 20 June) and Mahon (from 21 June) in its flight schedule from Berlin.

Refurbishment work at Tegel Airport's Terminal D

Within the framework of improvements at Tegel Airport, refurbishment work will be carried out in the check-in area of Terminal D from 29 June to 8 July. During this period, check-in will not be available in Terminal D but the waiting areas and gates to this area will remain open. Flights whose check-in is normally in Terminal D will be relocated to other terminals. Passengers should contact their airline for further information and consult the internet (www.berlin-airport.de) and information screens at the airport for details of the check-in desk for their flights.
