New international route to Berlin from Malmö Airport
Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA) is investing in international traffic and in early April will launch a new direct route to Berlin from Malmö Airport. The German capital has grown steadily in popularity, and with the new direct route passengers will be offered two weekly departures from Malmö.
On April 2, BRA will launch its first international route from Malmö Airport. The destination is Berlin, a city for which there is great demand. The direct route will be flown two days a week with climate-efficient ATR 72–600 aircraft.
"We welcome the investment that BRA is making in the region by launching its first international route from Malmö. Now it will be easy and convenient for people from Skåne to reach the popular city of Berlin. The new direct route will also meet the growing demand among our passengers for sustainable air travel,” says Peter Weinhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport.
Passengers have the option of choosing carbon-offsetting, bookable bio fuel when they purchase their ticket as well as fuel-efficient turboprop aircraft. Fossil emissions are always carbon-offset for all passengers flying with BRA.
For many years, Swedavia has carried out ambitious sustainability work. All ten of its airports shall have zero emissions of fossil carbon dioxide from their own operations by 2020. Swedavia also works actively to promote the industry’s transition to bio fuel and has the goal that five per cent of all fuel used to refuel aircraft at Swedish airports shall be fossil-free by 2025.
The direct route between Malmö Airport and Berlin Tegel will launch on April 2, 2020, and will be operated by ATR 72–600 model aircraft with seating for 72 passengers. Flying time is estimated at 95 minutes.
