Cologne Bonn Airport has confirmed the welcome return of easyJet this summer, following the low-cost carrier’s (LCC) announcement of a new link with Berlin Tegel. From 1 June, the LCC will add 33 weekly flights from the North Rhine-Westphalia region to its latest hub in the German capital.
“We are pleased to welcome easyJet, one of the fastest-growing European airlines, back to Cologne Bonn. The carrier’s new multiple-daily connection significantly increases the attractiveness of our offer on the Berlin route which is in high-demand,” says Athanasios Titonis, Managing Director, Cologne Bonn Airport.
Utilising the airline’s fleet of A320s based at Berlin Tegel, the addition of easyJet’s capacity will see another 5,700 weekly seats between the two airports, with Cologne Bonn offering close to 15,000 weekly seats to Germany’s largest city in S18.
The LCC returns to Cologne Bonn after two-year hiatus, gaining an immediate 40% share of flights to Berlin Tegel, and significantly boosting the gateway’s domestic connections.
