On Saturday afternoon, Lufthansa and Easyjet will make a parallel landing on the occasion of the opening of Berlin-Brandenburg Airport. The crane airline will take off from Munich at around 12 p.m. under flight number LH50. The arrival at BER is announced for 2020 p.m.
Lufthansa boss Carsten Spohr and a few guests will be on board. The carrier emphasizes that the special flight should be carried out in a climate-neutral manner, as the emissions will be offset via the Group's own platform. Lufthansa has only been flying to Berlin airports for 30 years. Previously, this was not possible due to the special status of the city. The traffic was carried out by carriers of the victorious powers of the Second World War. Airlines from neutral countries were also given permission to fly to Berlin's airports in the east and west.
Lufthansa Group Airlines customers can expect a wide range of services at the new BER to make their travel experience even more pleasant. For example, a new 650 square meter Lufthansa lounge with approx. 150 seats is opening - naturally designed taking into account the current hygiene and distance rules. The surrounding window front offers a phenomenal view of the apron and, in good weather, an exclusive view of the famous Berlin TV tower.
Flights from Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian and Brussels Airlines as well as Air Dolomiti are handled at the so-called main pier, just a short walk from the lounge. Eurowings flights are mainly handled at the north pier.
On November 8, 2020, Berlin-Tegel Airport will close its flight operations and Lufthansa will move to BER. At 6.45 a.m., a Lufthansa aircraft will take off from the new capital city airport for the first time with flight LH173 to Frankfurt. First landings at BER are planned for November 7th. Together with Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and Swiss will start operations at BER on November 8th and Brussels Airlines on November 9th. Eurowings is moving to BER a little earlier. A regular EW flight will take off from BER for the first time on November 4th. The airline, which will be based in T2 in the long term, will initially start at BER in T1. Air Dolomiti will be flying to BER from the summer flight schedule.
