Stefan Pichler, CEO of airberlin, stated: “Despite cross-sector market volatilities, we were once again able to increase our capacity utilization. This demonstrates that airberlin, with its attractive flight route network and the outstanding products and services on offer, is able to sustain its competitive edge. In the coming months, the optimization of our network will remain a cornerstone of airberlin’s reorientation. To this effect, we are focusing on our expanded range of long-haul flights from the airberlin hubs Düsseldorf and Berlin.”
