Berlin market is very price-sensitive but space is tight
As it tries to find ways of getting a bigger slice of the low-cost market, Lufthansa is looking into starting low-cost long-haul flights from Berlin using its Eurowings brand.
“Berlin could also be an interesting market… At the moment we are negotiating opportunities,” Lufthansa’s chief executive Carsten Spohr said at an event celebrating 25 years since it restarted flights to Berlin.
The market in Berlin is very price-sensitive, he said, which would make it a suitable base for Eurowings to operate from in the future. For the moment, however, the brand is concentrating on flights from Cologne.
Eurowings is operating two long-haul aircraft this winter, flying to Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Dubai, Bangkok and Phuket. But the opening of Berlin’s new airport may be further delayed and space at existing airports is tight, making the launch of new routes from there difficult.
