Delta Air Lines is back in the capital region and is now connecting BER Airport non-stop with JFK Airport in New York. The U.S. airline is taking off from BER Airport for the first time and will be flying daily to the metropolis on the U.S. East Coast during the summer flight schedule.
Aletta von Massenbach, Chairwoman of the Management Board, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “For many people from the worlds of art, culture and business, it is a necessity to be able to move quickly, directly and at any time between New York and Berlin. I am therefore delighted to welcome Delta Air Lines as a long-standing partner of the airport company in Tegel with this important connection now at BER. Being able to continue the good cooperation with Delta at BER is of great importance to us.”
Nicolas Ferri, Delta Vice President Europe, Middle East, Africa and India, said, “The resumption of our nonstop service from Berlin to New York, like the rebuilding of our entire Germany – USA network, was a major priority for Delta. Berlin is extremely popular with our American guests. At the same time, demand for flights from Berlin to the USA is very high. Last but not least, we are pleased to fly out of Berlin Brandenburg Airport for the first time and connect the destination to our Terminal 4 at JFK. Ten new gates have been built there as part of our billion-dollar investment program, with modern and spacious seating areas and the latest technology for easy check-in and baggage check-in.”
The BER – JFK route mostly uses modern Boeing 767-300s, which can accommodate 225 passengers. Flight time averages nine hours.
