Cardiff Airport is celebrating the launch of a new Flybe route to the German capital of Berlin.
From 1st October, passengers can embark on a festive leisure trip to a Christmas market, or on a convenient business trip to the historic city.
Flights to Berlin will begin operating twice a week on a Wednesday and Saturday with fares available from just £29.99 each way including taxes and charges. Tickets are available on www.flybe.com.
The service, originally due to launch in November was brought forward due to customer demand and is sure to be welcomed by Welsh leisure and business passengers craving a cultural weekend of art, music, and cutting-edge restaurants.
The new service will also prove an important route for inbound visitors to Wales with German passengers heading to the capital to explore Cardiff and further afield.
Debra Barber, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer, Cardiff Airport, said: “This fantastic new route by Flybe is another major step towards our vision of connecting capital cities. Our Welsh passengers can now touch down in Berlin for a cultural weekend of art, architecture, and vintage shopping.
“With the festive season also approaching, this is a wonderful destination for customers wanting to visit some of Berlin’s magical Christmas markets. As the national airport of Wales, we are extremely proud to offer yet another leading leisure and business destination.”
Berlin, a leisure and business destination boasts an abundance of museums, art galleries, cool attractions, a thriving nightlife scene and famous currywurst!
