Air Berlin has announced that it will extend its range of long-haul flights from Dusseldorf to North America.
Germany’s second-largest airline will be operating daily flights to New York and three flights a week to Los Angeles during its 2009 summer schedule. The carrier will also be operating five flights a week to Miami during the same period.
Air Berlin announced earlier this week that it would be launching a fourth daily service from Stansted to Dusseldorf.
Commenting on the increased frequency, Titus Johnson, Air Berlin’s country manager of the UK and Ireland, said: "The fourth daily frequency will offer travellers from UK the flexibility of flying at convenient times throughout the day."
The airline also announced that it would continue operating three weekly non-stop flights to Vancouver from Dusseldorf in the summer.
Airbus A330s will be used for Air Berlin’s north American routes. They have a capacity of 303 seats, 24 of which are in business class.
