German airline Lufthansa is to start a new daily service between Birmingham and Berlin.
And to get it off to a flying start the airline is offering Birmingham passengers flights for just £39 one-way, £79 return, inclusive of all taxes and charges.
The launch of the service will coincide with the opening of the new Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport next June.
