The low-cost airline Easyjet is noticeably reducing its presence in Germany in the 2022/23 winter flight schedule. The hardest hit by the cuts is Berlin Airport, where the local base is being downsized. A total of nine routes are permanently abandoned.
The former non-stop route to Vienna-Schwechat is also affected. One withdraws - at least for the time being - completely back from the largest airport in Austria. Route Berlin-Innsbruck will no longer be offered in the future. Easyjet no longer flies to Milan-Malpensa from Munich. This also applies to Berlin, but Linate is still offered from there.
Six other routes from the German capital will be suspended at least for the winter of 2022/23. These can be booked again in the 2023 summer timetable, but the actual resumption is still open.
Easyjet and Ryanair have repeatedly criticized the airport charges at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport. Both carriers used these for extensive cuts in the German capital. Just a few days ago, the Irish low-cost airline announced that Capacity will subtract from the BER. At Easyjet, it has been apparent for some time that they are secretly downsizing. The company explained, among other things, that the aircraft could be used more profitably from other airports.
The following Germany routes have been removed from the Easyjet network:
- Berlin – Athens
- Berlin – Cologne/Bonn
- Berlin – Milan-Malpensa
- Berlin – Santa Cruz de la Palma
- Berlin – Vienna
- Munich – Milan-Malpensa
The following routes will not be offered in winter 2022/23, but can currently be booked for summer 2023:
- Berlin – Lisbon
- Berlin – Thessaloniki
