With a market share of more than 30 percent, Lufthansa is now ahead, Easyjet and Ryana e come to around 16 percent each. This is evident from figures from the flight database OAG and the airlines. "The Lufthansa Group currently offers twice as many flights to and from Berlin as the number two," said Spohr. “Our airlines account for a third of 15,000 flights that start in the capital in September and October.”

While the airlines of the Lufthansa Group continue to offer most connections, but fly less often and with smaller planes, Easyjet provides domestic German connections, for example permanently. The former number one in Berlin plans to withdraw half of the fleet from the German capital. The pandemic alone does not explain Easyjet's radical downsizing, criticized the Verdi union.
