Service to Berlin starts up again

From the end of March, SkyWork Airlines will by flying the route from Graz to Berlin, six times a week.

Feldkirchen bei Graz, 15.11.2017 : On 25th March, at the start of next summer’s timetable, the Swiss airline SkyWork Airlines will start flights on the Graz to Berlin/Tegel route. The service will use a 50-seater Saab 2000.

Martin Inäbnit, CEO SkyWork Airlines: “I am delighted that SkyWork Airlines will now also be operating out of Graz and I am looking forward to a long and profitable partnership. Connecting Austria’s wonderful Styrian state with Germany’s largest city is a great challenge for us and the W-flight matches up exactly with the concept of our growth strategy as laid out in the “SX-GO” project.”

Following airberlin’s sudden withdrawal from the Graz - Berlin route at the end of May of this year, Graz Airport has held intensive discussions with several airlines about the reinstatement of the route.

Governor MMag.a Barbara Eibinger-Miedl: “Germany is Styria’s most important trading partner and when it comes to tourism, our most important market outside of Austria. I am delighted, that after the ending of the airberlin connection to Germany’s capital city, the Graz Airport team, led by Director Gerhard Widmann, has managed to re-establish a direct flight from Styria to Berlin so quickly. This supports our export-based companies and strengthens Styria as a tourism destination!”

Mayor Mag. Siegfried Nagl: “Berlin is a great city and together with Graz, it is a member of the “Creative Cities” network! I am delighted that we now have a daily connection and I also express my thanks to the airport director and his team for their efforts in this respect.”“

Berlin was a permanent and significant part of the timetable for many years,” explains D.I. Wolfgang Malik, CEO of Holding Graz. “And that is why re-establishing the route has had the highest priority for us as the owner’s representative, over the last few months.”

“We have been in regular discussions with SkyWork Airlines over a long time,” says Mag. Gerhard Widmann, Managing Director of Graz Airport, “which has helped to clear the way for the re-establishment of the Berlin connection. I am delighted that we can offer direct flight connections to the German capital once again.”
