airberlin is continuing to expand its market leadership in Berlin-Tegel and is offering more flights to Miami and New York (JFK) in the coming summer schedule. As of April 13th, 2017, the ten flights a week originally planned to New York will be supplemented by four flights, so that two daily flights will be available on each day of the week. There will be five flights a week to Miami instead of the previously planned three.
An Airbus A330-200 will depart from New York (JFK) at 17:10 each day, with seats in both economy and business class. In business class, passengers will enjoy full-flat seats, a three-course menu and quality drinks and wines. However, the time will also fly by in economy class until the plane arrives in Berlin at 07:00 on the next morning, thanks to 46 XL seats with 20 per cent more legroom. The second flight leaves New York at 23:30 and arrives in Berlin at 13:20 local time.
The connection from Miami to Berlin-Tegel, which this year will be available for the first time year round, will increase from three to five weekly flights from mid-April.
