Under the current air services arrangements between the UAE and Germany, Emirates is entitled to operate to just four on-line points of call in Germany and is already fully utilizing such an allotment.
In order to better satisfy the strong market demand and offer more choice to its German customers, Emirates has been seeking since 2004 the right to serve Berlin and Stuttgart as its additional points of call in Germany - besides its current four points.
We believe that international air services, being recognized as one of the most important drivers of economic growth, should be encouraged to develop in the post-recession period. Hence we hope that our long-standing request would receive German Government’s support.
Emirates’ services to Berlin and Stuttgart, both of which remain underserviced in terms of scheduled intercontinental routes, would benefit trade, investment, tourism and employment in the two cities, their surrounding regions and nationwide in Germany.
