The British low-cost airline now flies to Zurich (Switzerland), Marseille (France), Newcastle (United Kingdom) and La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain). The Zurich route now features six times a week in the airlines flight plan (daily except Saturdays).

Flights depart for Marseille and Newcastle three times a week. Flights leave on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. La Palma, in the Canary Islands, is served twice a week from Schönefeld.

Flights leave on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This winter, the British airline with its well-known white and orange livery will fly from Berlin-Schönefeld to a total of 38 destinations.

“Thanks to the expansion of our fleet in Berlin, we will be offering four new destinations once our winter flight plan begins. By stationing our 11th aircraft at Schönefeld, we can extend our programme here in the capital.

"This also has advantages for the area: the number of our employees based in Berlin is being increased by 36 to 465 staff members, all with German employment contracts”, says Thomas Haagensen, CEO of destinations Deutschland.

Overall, easyJet will grow by 15% at Schönefeld within the first half of 2017 compared with the previous year. This corresponds to 360,000 additional passengers.
