Air France Moves to New Berlin Brandenburg Airport
Air France will start operating flights to the brand new Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt International Airport (BER) with effect from 8 November 2020.
Flight AF1434 operated by Airbus A319 will take off from Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 7:30 am and arrive in Berlin at 9:10 am (local time). Air France will operate to and from Terminal 1.
Eligible passengers will have access to Skypriority, the airline’s service offering priority check-in, boarding, and baggage delivery on arrival. They will also have access to the airport’s lounges.
This winter, Air France will operate up to 5 flights between the new Berlin airport and Paris-Charles de Gaulle with connections to nearly 170 destinations worldwide.
By transferring all flights to Berlin airport, Air France will cease all operations to and from the historic Berlin-Tegel.
In 1960, Air France was the first airline to land a commercial flight at Berlin-Tegel. On 8 November 2020, it will also be the very last airline to take off from this airport before its final closure.
Flight AF1235, operated by Airbus A321, will take off at 3:00 pm, arriving at Paris CDG at 4:50 pm (local time). To celebrate the event, customers on the last flight will enjoy special surprises.
