Some months after the insolvency of AirBerlin, the British Easyjet has announced a new base at the former AirBerlin hub Berlin-Tegel. Easyjet has signed an agreement with Air Berlin to acquire part of its operations at Berlin Tegel Airport in October this year. The flights to and from Berlin-Tegel Airport remain subject to regulatory approval of Easyjet’s transaction with Air Berlin.

Easyjet plans to commence operations in Berlin-Tegel in January 2018. The carrier will offer flights to four domestic and fifteen international destinations.

Thomas Haagensen, Managing Director Easyjet Europe said: “Easyjet is proud to deliver more competition and lower fares to passengers in Germany, particularly on domestic routes where there is currently limited choice. Our schedule from Tegel also delivers excellent value for business passengers who will benefit from first wave departures enabling day trips to get passengers back home by dinnertime.”

By offering flights from Berlin to Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart, Easyjet will directly compete with Lufthansa and its low cost subsidiary Eurowings. Easyjet and Eurowings will compete on every domestic route.
