The Lufthansa Group announced on Wednesday that a Group flights to and from Berlin will move from Berlin-Tegel (TXL) to Berlin’s new Brandenburg Airport (BER) from November 8, 2020.
Today (March 4, 2020) the Lufthansa Group announced the transition of all six Lufthansa Group Airlines’ flights from Berlin-Tegel (TXL) to the new Berlin-Brandenburg (BER) airport by November 8, 2020. Over the course of a week from October 31, 2020, Lufthansa Group flights will begin operating from Brandenburg. Lufthansa will operate their final flight from Tegel (LH1955) to Munich on November 7, 2020. The carrier’s premier flight at Brandenburg (LH173) will depart for Frankfort at 6:30AM the next morning. Eurowings’ first flight from Brandenburg is currently scheduled for November 4th and Austrian Airlines, SWISS, and Brussels Airlines will launch operations together at Brandenburg on November 8, 2020.
Lufthansa Group guests booking flights now for travel from November 8th will see their new gateway as Brandenburg (BER) instead of Tegel (TXL). Customers who have booked travel from Berlin-Tegel after November 8th will be notified and re-booked. In Wednesday’s announcement, Deutsche Lufthansa AG Executive Board Member and Chief Commercial Officer – Passenger Airlines, Harry Hohmeister said,
“We care about Berlin. No one else connects Berlin with the world like we do. Six Lufthansa Group airlines fly the German capital – with up to 33,000 passengers a day. 270 destinations can be reached with only one transfer. Berlin is a fascinating and cosmopolitan city that attracts people from all over the world. That is why Berlin needs an efficient airport. This also includes even better connections between BER and local transportation as well as to the long-distance rail network. More ICE connections to Rostock, Dresden and Hamburg could strengthen intermodal traffic. That would be good for passengers and for the environment.”
Lufthansa guests will also enjoy the new Lufthansa Lounge located in Brandenburg airport’s Terminal 1 - Main Pier North. The 1,600 square meter lounge will be available to Business Class customers of Lufthansa Group airlines as well as travelers with Frequent Traveller, Senator, Star Alliance Gold and HON Circle status. The lounge features separate areas for Senator and Business guests and features spaces to relax, refresh or work in peace prior to their flights. Additionally, the lounge has a surrounding window front with a spectacular view of the apron area and Berlin skyline.
