Air Berlin, Germany's second largest airline further enhances its flight network from UK to Germany and launches a fourth daily service from Stansted to Dusseldorf.

Another new route for winter 2008/09 is a twice daily connecting flight from Stansted via Dusseldorf to the German city of Dresden from 1st December 2008.

The fourth daily frequency will offer travellers from UK the flexibility of flying at convenient times throughout the day," says Titus Johnson, Country Manager for the UK and Ireland.
