Airberlin recently announced it will be launching its flights to Dusseldorf from Dallas/Fort Worth during next summer schedule. Germany’s second-largest carrier said that the flights would be operational from May 2016.
Media reports said that Airberlin would be operating four-time weekly flights between Dusseldorf Airport (DUS) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The new service would be conducted on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays every week.
Stefan Pichler, CEO of Airberlin, said, “With the launch of the new Dusseldorf-DFW route I now see that the business travel market especially has a strong potential now. The company considers United States to be a vital part of its network strategy and expects to see a strong growth in this market in future.”
Pichler further stated that the passenger demand for flights services to the United States continue to remain an all-time high. The addition of Dallas/Fort Worth to the airline’s U.S. network would offer even more travel options to the customers than before.
The new service from Dusseldorf has also been widely welcomed by Sean Donohue, CEO of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Donohue said that Dusseldorf will now become a key destination in Europe in the airport’s expanding portfolio of international flights.
Meanwhile, Airberlin has said that it will be introducing a total of 15 additional weekly flights to/from the United States from next summer, thus taking the total to 58 flights per week each from Dusseldorf and Berlin. The airline will now be serving eight destinations in the U.S., including new flights to San Francisco and Boston.
