The low-cost airline Easyjet is reducing its presence at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport in the 2022/23 winter flight schedule. Numerous routes will be canceled or sent on a "winter break". On other routes, the frequencies will be greatly reduced in some cases.
The cuts come as no surprise, as Easyjet announced a few weeks ago that the number of aircraft stationed in Berlin-Brandenburg would be reduced will return in autumn 2022. It was also announced at the time that up to 250 employees would be cut. One of the reasons given was that the aircraft could be used more profitably from other airports. This was definitely a dig at the cost structure at the capital's airport, which has also been criticized by competitor Ryanair.
Skiers from the catchment area of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport will have to do without non-stop flights to Innsbruck in Austria in the upcoming 2022/23 winter season. This route is not offered and should be reactivated at the beginning of the 2023 summer period at the earliest. Switching to Salzburg will also be complicated. This route will not be deleted, but the frequencies will be significantly reduced.
In addition to Innsbruck, Easyjet's winter string concert in Berlin-Brandenburg has the following destinations: Cologne/Bonn, Faro, Athens, Gothenburg, Helsinki, La Palma, Milan-Malpensa, Porto, Paphos, Thessaloniki and Marrakech. The destinations mentioned are not to be served in the 2022/23 winter flight schedule. Another shaky candidate: Vienna. Although this destination can be booked, a final decision has not yet been made as to whether it will actually be reactivated in the 2022/23 winter flight schedule.
Frequencies will be reduced on almost all remaining Easyjet routes from Berlin-Brandenburg. The routes to Zurich, Valencia, Salzburg, Pristina, Palma de Mallorca, Nice, Naples, London-Luton, Hurghada, Geneva, Rome-Fiumicino, Copenhagen, Catania, Basel, Stockholm-Arlanda, Amsterdam and Paris-Charles de are worth mentioning Gaulle. Depending on the destination, the cuts are stronger or weaker.
