Aegean Airlines returns to Berlin Tegel; adds two routes to St Petersburg
- Aegean Airlines, which in the preceding week inaugurated services on the ex-Olympic Air route from Athens (ATH) to Geneva, launched three new destinations last week. From the Greek capital, the airline resumed flights on the 1,800-kilometre route to Berlin Tegel (TXL), which it last served in January 2012. While Aegean Airlines is the only carrier to offer services to Athens from the German capital’s busiest airport, easyJet competes indirectly with five-weekly flights from Berlin Schönefeld. In addition, on 1 May, the Greek carrier commenced services to St Petersburg (LED) from both Heraklion (HER) and Rhodes (RHO), bringing the total of Greek destinations it connects with the Russian city to four (it already offers twice-weekly flights from both Athens and Thessaloniki). All new services are operated with A320s.
