Stansted to Munich service launched

Mon, 05 Nov, 2007

Air Berlin today launched a new direct service between London Stansted Airport and the Bavarian city of Munich.

It will operate twice a day from Monday to Friday, with one flight on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are available from £24 one way including taxes.

Nick Barton, business development and planning director at London Stansted Airport, is confident the new route will prove to be a hit with leisure travellers.

He added that it could also become popular with business fliers, as Munich is "regarded as the economic centre of southern Germany and home to the European and German headquarters of many worldwide companies, including Microsoft, BMW and Siemens".

Earlier this year Air Berlin shared the Best Short Haul Business Airline honour with British Airways at the Business Travel Awards.

Judges praised its commitment to offering a business service for low-cost prices and the way it had developed its UK network.
