5 times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and from the beginning of May also on Thursday, “Eurowings” flies from Graz to Berlin. The flight time to the German capital is only 1 hour and 15 minutes.
“We are very pleased that we are now flying directly from Graz to Berlin for the first time,” says “Eurowings” CEO Jens Bischof. “With the new route, we are linking Styria more closely than before to the German capital region. At the same time, many Berliners and Brandenburgers can now discover southern Austria much more easily. The same applies to the Hamburg metropolitan region: on May 5, the new connection between Graz and the Hanseatic city will start with 4 weekly rotations. Together with Graz Airport, we are pleased about the successful expansion of our route network.”
Facts about the Berlin flights:
“The start of the Berlin connection is the prelude to an extensive expansion of services by Eurowings at Graz Airport this year,” informs Wolfgang Grimus, Managing Director of Graz Airport. “The beginning of May will see the opening of the 11th Eurowings base and the start of the connection to Hamburg, and then things will gradually get underway with many vacation flights. With the start of the Berlin flights, we are once again connected to one of the most important metropolises in Europe. Berlin is an important destination for Styrian business and industry as well as an extremely attractive city break destination for private travelers. At the same time, we expect that this direct connection will also bring many tourists and business people from Berlin/Brandenburg and the neighboring federal states to Styria.”
Holding Graz CEO Wolfgang Malik: “Our flight connections to Germany are quite volatile due to various developments, but as the owner’s representative I am optimistic about the future, not least thanks to the new Eurowings base in Graz and the additional, new connections it will bring. Our airport in Graz, as the largest regional airport in the Alps-Adriatic region, will in future offer an extended range of popular connections in Europe with Berlin and, with the forthcoming new Hamburg connection, will bring northern Germany closer to Styria in a particularly attractive way for business and tourism. I am confident that Graz Airport will soon reach the top level again in its multifunctionality as a regional airport with many international connections.”
