The gateway to Berlin is the Berlin International Airport, also known as Tegel, the city’s main international airport; however, it will soon be closed upon completion of the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, anytime between 2011 and 2012. The old airport is located in Tegel, a part of the northern borough of Reinickendorf.
To fly to Berlin, you can take Lufthansa, the largest airline in Europe, and Germany’s flag carrier. The airline offers cheap, economy class flights to Berlin; services include audio-video-on-demand and private TV, while radio monitors are built into the seats. Lufthansa does not offer in-flight entertainment on its short-haul trips. Unfortunately, there are some complaints about the seats having little legroom.
If you are on a tight budget, Ryanair, Europe’s largest low-cost airline, offers cheap flights to Berlin, as well as most major EU cities. Another airline, Easyjet, also one of Europe’s largest cut-rate carriers, also offers cheap flights to Berlin. Other budget-fare carriers are Air Berlin and Clickair, both offering low-cost flights to Berlin.
