Air Berlin to start same-day service to Antigua
Friday, July 22, 2011
ST. JOHN'S, Antigua, Friday July 22, 2011 - Tourists from Germany will soon be able to travel to Antigua much faster and much more frequently, with Air Berlin beginning same day service to the island soon.

Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture John Maginley and the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA), through negotiations with German Airline, Air Berlin, has announced a code-share agreement between Air Berlin PLC & Co. Luftverkehrs KG with British Airways as a marketing carrier to Antigua and Barbuda.

Flights are scheduled to begin as early as this summer.

“The opportunity for having scheduled flights out of Germany daily within the winter months and six days a week during the summer months, will allow for greater access to German market rather than just a weekly charter," said Minister Maginley.

He said he is extremely excited about the new agreement and anticipates that the code-share relationship will be beneficial to the respective countries involved and produce greater opportunities for growth within the tourism sector.

ABTA, through its offices in England, will be working to promote Antigua & Barbuda to the German market.
