Air Berlin will continue operating from Manchester Airport

Mon, 24 Aug, 2009

German carrier Air Berlin will introduce flights from Manchester Airport to Paderborn this winter.

The airline will launch three weekly flights to the North Rhine-Westphalia city from the north-west airport on November 4th.

Flights will be operated using a Boeing 737-800 and will run on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Services will depart from Manchester at 20:00 GMT before touching down in Paderborn at 22:25 (local time).

Return flights will depart at 18:45 (local time) and arrive in the north-west at 19:15 GMT.

Paderborn could tempt travellers flying from Manchester thanks to its 1,200-year history and is known for both its ancient and modern qualities.

Elsewhere in the UK, air Berlin offers flights from London Stansted Airport to Munster, Hanover, and Dusseldorf, while Paderborn and Nuremberg are also served from the Essex airport.

Manchester Airport announced last week that it was using social networking website Twitter to provide live flight data and prizes.
