27th November 2008 - 05:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Readers of The Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph have voted Air Berlin as their favourite budget carrier - for the second successive year.

Air Berlin, Germany's second largest airline, picked up the ‘Best Low Cost Airline' prize in the prestigious Telegraph Travel Awards held at The Honourable Artillery Company in London last night.

Results this year were collated from the responses of more than 25,000 readers, confirming the awards as one of the most important and representative accolades in the travel industry.

Titus Johnson, Air Berlin's Country Manager for the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands, said: "Winning the Telegraph Travel Awards for a second year running is proof that consumers understand they need not substitute comfort and service to get lower fares."

"Air Berlin prides itself on providing the best value to both leisure and corporate customers. We are intent on keeping the frills and do not hit people with additional charges for checking in luggage or seat choice. We are delighted Telegraph readers recognise how we stand apart from the pack."

Flights are available now via Air Berlin's website (, from the company's service centre (Tel. 01805 - 737 800) and through travel agents.

Notes to editors: Air Berlin prices start at £24 one way and include taxes, fuel surcharge, allocated seating, a 20kg baggage allowance, complimentary sandwich and soft drinks, newspapers & magazines and miles from the frequent flyer programme Top Bonus. Children's discount available on some fares.

Air Berlin serves five routes direct from Stansted (Düsseldorf, Hanover, Nüremberg, Munster and Paderborn) and one route direct from Mancheste(Paderborn). For UK customers the airline offers onwards connections to destinations worldwide via its Düsseldorf hub.
