    AirBerlin is continuing its expansion from the USA: as of March 23, 2013 the airline will start operating nonstop flights from Chicago to Berlin, making it the first airline ever to provide a connection between this major U.S. metropolitan city and the capital of Germany. Following the inauguration of the nonstop flight from Los Angeles to Berlin in May of this year, this is the second major launch in 2012 for airberlin from the US to Germany thus far.

    AirBerlin will start operations on the new route in time for the Easter holidays at the end of March 2013. When the summer schedule starts in May 2013, airberlin will increase the number of nonstop flights from three to five frequencies per week.

    From May 1, 2013, an AirBerlin Airbus A330-200 will operate the eight-hour flight to Berlin from the Windy City on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Between March 23 and April 31 2013, airberlin will operate the direct flight every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The flight departs from Chicago at 15:25 p.m. arriving in the German capital city at 07:00 a.m. next day. The return flight from Berlin leaves at 10:00 a.m. and arrives at Chicago O’Hare airport at 12:10 p.m.

    Great News!

    My parents would like to go to Budapest, Prague, and Vienna (and it seems to have some good flights from Berlin to these places). Does this mean they could possibly use their American miles to book reward tickets on Air Berlin?
