The German carriers have moved quickly to fill the gap left by the disappearance of Air Berlin from international flight schedules this winter, offering various routes formerly operated by the bankrupt carrier as well as other intercontinental destinations. For their part, several international airlines have expanded long-haul routes to Germany.

Condor has various new routes this winter. The Thomas Cook airline has started weekly flights from Frankfurt to Nassau (Bahamas) and Samana in the Dominican Republic, as well as from Munich to Martinique, Dubai and Recife in Brazil. In Düsseldorf, Condor is launching several Caribbean routes this month, including Punta Cana (twice-weekly) and weekly services to La Romana (Dominican Republic), Cancun, Montego Bay and Barbados. In addition, it is operating full charter flights for tour operator FTI from three airports to Dubai this winter.

Lufthansa has launched five weekly long-haul flights from Berlin to New York and three weekly flights from Düsseldorf to Miami, both former Air Berlin routes. In addition, it has increased weekly flights from Frankfurt to Cape Town from three to five and added a seventh weekly flight to Rio de Janeiro. From Munich, Germany’s largest airline has increased flights to Charlotte, Denver and Tokyo to daily.

Budget subsidiary Eurowings has launched weekly flights from Cologne to Cape Town in addition to the Namibia route which it started last spring. From Düsseldorf, the airline will be operating flights to four Caribbean destinations: Punta Cana and Puerto Plata twice-weekly and (from December 18) Cancun weekly. Meanwhile, also in Düsseldorf, Azur Air has started a weekly flight to Varadero.

Germany’s largest airport, Frankfurt, has more flights on several intercontinental routes this winter. Air China has added an additional weekly flight to three cities and now serves Beijing 14 times a week, Shanghai seven times and Chengdu three times. Iran Air has added a fourth weekly flight to Teheran. From January 2, Vietnam Airlines will increase flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to 10 per week with a larger A350 plane.
