At precisely 11.25 a.m. today, a Germania A319 (flight number ST8166) took off for Adana in Turkey, successfully completing the airline’s move from Berlin-Tegel to Schönefeld Airport. All scheduled connections and most charter flights operated by Germania will now take off and land in the south-east of Berlin.
Germania Technik Brandenburg, a subsidiary of Germania, is already operating a maintenance hangar in Berlin-Schönefeld together with airberlin. By concentrating its flight operations, the Germania Group is able to eliminate costly duplicate technical and maintenance structures. At the same time, the move to Schönefeld obviates unnecessary and expensive positioning flights between Tegel and Schönefeld Airport.
Oliver Pawel, Germania’s Chief Commercial Officer: ‘We are delighted that we were able to move our flight operations from Tegel to Schönefeld on time and according to schedule. The proximity of our new home base to the maintenance hangar of Germania Technik Brandenburg in Schönefeld means that the individual divisions of our company can now cooperate more closely and efficiently. This puts us in an ideal position to react even more flexibly and quickly to future changes on the market.’
Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: ‘We are delighted that Germania is now operating flights from Berlin-Schönefeld. Germania is and remains an important partner for Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. By moving to Schönefeld, the airline is clearly underscoring its commitment to Berlin-Schönefeld and the region as well as helping to reduce the pressure and noise at Berlin-Tegel. We wish Germania all the best for all future flights.’
Germania is also offering tour operators flights from Berlin-Schönefeld to the Canary Islands, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as well as continuing its successful scheduled connection to Beirut. Flight ST6002 takes off from Schönefeld on Mondays and Fridays at 2 p.m. and arrives at the Lebanese capital at 6.50 p.m. The return flight ST6003 departs at 7.55 p.m. and lands in Berlin at 10.45 p.m. From mid December, Germania will also be flying twice a week non-stop from Berlin Schönefeld to Skopje. The Macedonian capital will be served on Mondays and Fridays. Flight ST1992 takes off from Berlin at 3.25 p.m. and arrives in Skopje at 5.25 p.m. In the opposite direction, flight ST1993 takes off at 6.55 p.m. and lands at Berlin-Schönefeld Airport at 8.55 p.m.
