Germany’s airline Air Berlin is suspending all flights to Russia, starting from January due to falling demand, the company said in a statement. Thus, it will be impossible to get on a plane to Russia via Air Berlin from January 2016.
- Unfortunately, the demand did not manage to match the expectations, so it was decided to cancel flights to Russia, namely, flights between Dusseldorf and Moscow, Berlin and Moscow, as well between Berlin and Kaliningrad. The last flight between Moscow and Berlin will be on January 18, 2016, according to the German airline.
This is not the first carrier to have left the Russian market. Previously, due to the declining demand EasyJet and Thai Airways ceased flights to Russia. Lufthansa and Czech Airlines have cut the number of flights. From Oct. 25 Ukrainian companies will also hit this list.
