Air Berlin Offers More Flights to Germany from Southwest Florida

FORT MYERS, Fla. Easier access to Europe this summer with the help of Air Berlin. Air Berlin, which recently acquired LTU, resumed its twice-weekly nonstop service to Munich (MUC) from Southwest Florida International Airport in May. A third weekly nonstop flight to Düsseldorf (DUS) will be added to Air Berlin’s schedule on June 24. These flights offer passengers more flexibility and the ability to connect to major European travel destinations, including Berlin, Hamburg, Vienna, Zurich and London. Air Berlin is Germany’s second-largest airline with 127 aircraft flying to more than 100 destinations throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the world. Robert M. Ball, A.A.E., executive director of the Lee County Port Authority said. “Air Berlin’s extensive network allows passengers to travel onward from Düsseldorf or Munich to many German airports and top holiday destinations in Europe.”
