The longest route, from Basel to Athens (ATH), spans 1,711 kilometres, whilst the shortest – Berlin Tegel to Gothenburg (GOT) – clocks in at 570 kilometres. Commenting on the launch of these latest routes from the German capital, Professor Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Berlin Brandenburg Airport, stated: “easyJet is expanding its range from Tegel to further destinations. This is good news for passengers to and from Berlin. The airline is further expanding its involvement in the capital region and is making a major contribution to increasing passenger numbers at Berlin’s airports. Having had slightly fewer passengers in Berlin in the first half of 2018, we now see that the gap left by airberlin’s bankruptcy is finally over.” It should be noted that Ljubljana services were scheduled to begin on 9 August, however Flightradar24.com data confirms that the first flight actually took place on 2 August. See how the FTWAs from Graz, Belgrade, Oslo Gardermoen, Ancona, and Montpellier compare to others from around the world.
