As the largest airline based in Berlin-Brandenburg, easyJet has opened a new chapter with the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport “Willy Brandt”. An easyJet aircraft, special flight EJU 3110, was the first to land, on time at 2pm on October 31, at the new airport.

The Airbus 320neo was ceremonially welcomed with a water salute and by representatives from politics, industry, and the media. On November 1, easyJet again achieved a first, as its flight to Gatwick started commercial operations at BER. 

easyJet also announced a new cooperation between easyJet and Deutsche Bahn as part of the “Worldwide by easyJet” program. The tie-up will ensure convenient transfers between flights and trains in the future. The airline’s unique connection will soon be available and easyJet customers will be able to seamlessly connect to Deutsche Bahn trains, initially via Berlin, by combining plane and train tickets into one single booking. They will thus benefit from security in the event of missed connections and smooth transfers. Plans to extend the cooperation to other destinations are underway. 

The easyJet Worldwide program enables customers to connect easyJet flights with other flights across its own network as well as with flights operated by partner airlines. The network of more than 5,000 departure and destination points booked in combination with partner airlines is growing continuously.
