Airberlin, which is Berlin-Tegel Airport’s biggest carrier presently, was initially founded with an idea of being the national carrier for Berlin’s Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport. The airport was due to be opened for operations in 2011, but will become operational only after 2016.
The airline has nevertheless today established itself as among the top carriers in Europe. Through its massive network of destinations and routes, the airline has been providing efficient services to customers for the past 35 years ever since its conception. The airline attributes its success largely to the cabin comfort that it effectively provides.
Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO of Airberlin, had earlier this year spoken extensively on the airline’s new business class product and made it a focal point of the new “comfort offensive”.
Apart from Wolfgang, another top official of the airline also spoke eloquently about its new premium product. Roberto Cuesta, Airberlin’s VP for the Americas, said that the new business class product is being prominently featured on long-haul flights, including the U.S. He said that business travelers are quite concerned about the way in which they are able to conveniently connect to foreign destinations from their home airports in Dusseldorf and Berlin. And, the airline has never let them down. In fact, the airline has a robust network with many nonstop flights to the United States, particularly to cities like Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Fort Meyers and Chicago.
The airline offers full-flat seats on its business class flights. The 19 seats in business class cabin provide individual seating to the customers with enhanced privacy and a feeling of spaciousness. The premium flyers are also offered various amenities as well.
