Con te Partiro: Lufthansa Bids Farewell to Berlin Tegel



On 7 November the final Lufthansa flight to depart Berlin/Tegel will take off from the old capital city airport "Otto Lilienthal” at 9:20 pm, headed for Munich.


This flight will symbolize, closing the chapter to a part of Lufthansa’s history, which has lasted for decades.


The Berlin fire department will bid farewell to this special flight with a fountain of water, which will be visible as the airport will light up the evening event.


Due to a high demand of passengers wanting to experience this final flight, LH1955 will be operated by an Airbus A350-900. Numerous Tegel fans are among the passengers.


The last flight to Berlin/Tegel (LH1954) will arrive from Munich at 8:10 p.m. and land on the runway of the old airport.


The history of Lufthansa in Berlin is long and rich in tradition: Lufthansa was founded in Berlin in 1926, where flight operations were discontinued after World War II.


It was not until 28 October 1990 that the first Lufthansa connections to and from Berlin were available again – initially twelve daily flights within Germany and additional flights to London.


Today, six Lufthansa Group airlines operate to the German capital including Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, and Air Dolomiti (2021 summer).
