Air Berlin appoints Oasis Travels as Mideast GSA
Air Berlin has appointed Oasis Travels, a company fully owned by the Sharaf Group, as the passenger general sales agent for the UAE and Oman.
The carrier is due to launch the first non-stop connection between Dubai and Berlin with the start of the winter schedule in November.
Air Berlin will operate three times weekly flights to Berlin with an Airbus A330 aircraft. The flights will be integrated into the Air Berlin hub in Berlin-Tegel, allowing convenient connections to further destinations in Germany and Europe.
"The new destination reflects Air Berlin's desire to make the most of this market opportunity and will strengthen the airline's position in Berlin for years to come,” stated Joachim Hunold, CEO of Air Berlin.
“The service to Dubai is Air Berlin's first regular non-stop flight from Germany to the Middle East. By operating these flights, Air Berlin is offering an attractive product to business travellers as well as to holidaymakers,” he added.
