Airberlin to stop flying on Vienna-Belgrade route in summer 2013
Germany’s low-cost carrier Airberlin recently announced it will be scrapping its flights services from Vienna to Belgrade during summer 2013 schedule.
The airline in a statement said that Airberlin flights to Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia would no longer be operated from its Vienna hub. The airline stated that its decision to stop its flights to these destinations would be implemented in the summer of 2013 as part of its new network strategy.
A spokesperson of Airberlin said that the airline would now onwards be promoting its Eastern European services from its hub in the German capital Berlin. As a result, the airline would be increasingly transferring most of its flights services to Berlin, and has therefore decided not to operate nonstop flights from Vienna from summer 2013.
The airline indicated that it would be operating flights to nine destinations in Eastern Europe from Berlin. These destinations include Bucharest, Sofia, Budapest, Kaliningrad, Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Gdansk, Krakow and Warsaw.
