German airline airberlin is set to introduce four new weekly flights in May 2016 between Dusseldorf and Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) from DFW International Airport in Texas, US.
The airline is a member of Oneworld, which is an airline alliance founded on 1 February 1999.
The new flights are part of the airline’s initiative to expand its air routes and traffic to the US and to offer travellers at DFW Airport with more flight options and enjoy better connectivity to Europe.
This will also increase the traffic at the airport, which handles more than 63 million customers every year.
DFW Airport CEO Sean Donohue said: "We are excited to welcome oneworld partner airberlin to the Dallas Fort Worth area as they bring another key European destination to DFW’s growing portfolio of international flights.
"This new service to Dusseldorf will benefit our customers by providing more flight options and more connectivity to Europe. We are grateful to the team at airberlin for their commitment to our airport and our region and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership leveraging the strength of the oneworld network."
