21st November 2008 - 05:54 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Air Berlin has further strengthened its market position at the airport of Palma de Mallorca as it was the only airline that continued to achieve growth in the month of October 2008. In the period from January to October 2008 more than 5.7 million passengers flew Air Berlin from and to Palma. According to the Spanish airport operator AENA, this corresponds to a 27.1 per cent share of the total passenger volume passing through this Balearic airport.

Álvaro Middelmann, Director Spain & Portugal Air Berlin, commented: "The positive development of our Palma hub that has continued into 2008 shows that Air Berlin is remaining steady despite the worldwide crisis affecting the aviation industry and that our efficiency drive is producing results. As always, Air Berlin is offering its passengers an all-round service at a low price and will also be operating up to 226 non-stop flights a week to Palma in winter 2008/09."

The second largest German airline operates a hub at Palma with continuation flights to 18 destinations on the Spanish mainland, neighbouring Balearic Islands and in Portugal. The airline operates flights to the Balearic Island from 18 airports in Germany. Additional feeder flights arrive from Basel, Zurich, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Copenhagen, London, Milan-Malpensa and Stockholm. The partner airline, NIKI, provides a service from Vienna, Innsbruck and Salzburg to Air Berlin's hub in Majorca.

Last year Air Berlin carried around 5.9 million passengers to and from Majorca. This corresponds to a 6.6 per cent growth year on year. For seven years in succession Air Berlin has been the market leader at Europe's largest holiday airport.
