Air Berlin is to resume nonstop flights to Miami from the German capital this winter, having stopped the service last month.

From 5 November, an Airbus A330-200 will be used to serve the Floridian city direct from Berlin's Tegel airport at thrice-weekly frequency.

Oneworld member Air Berlin also flies a daily service to Miami from Dusseldorf. New York is served daily and Fort Myers thrice weekly from that German city.

As part of its expansion of transatlantic services from Berlin for the winter, the carrier will also up the frequency of the Chicago service from twice to thrice weekly, while two additional flights will make the New York service a daily one.

"In Dusseldorf, we're already the number one when it comes to flights to North America," says Stefan Pichler, Air Berlin's chief executive. "And now we're also improving our performance in Berlin Tegel, with a constant number of flights. The US is an important part of our network strategy. Within the United States, our passengers can access excellent connecting services with our codeshare partner, American Airlines."
