Germanwings to Take Over Some Air Berlin Routes, Koelner Says

Germanwings GmbH’s Chief Executive Officer Thomas Winkelmann plans to take over some of Air Berlin Plc’s routes from the Cologne/Bonn airport, Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger said, citing an interview with the manager.

Winkelmann said the company can make a profit on routes to Nador and Tangiers in Morocco as well as to Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, Naples in Italy and Palermo on the Italian island of Sicily, the German newspaper said.

Air Berlin, Germany’s second-biggest airline, said Aug. 18 it will cancel unprofitable routes, reduce flight frequencies and partially withdraw from regional airports to focus on its four main hubs.
