Sky Alps am BER

Welcome, Benvenuto and Bëgngnüs in Berlin, Sky Alps! Since June 30, the young South Tyrolean regional airline has been flying directly from BER to Bolzano.  Taking off twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, the flight to the northern Italian provincial capital takes 1:40 hours. 

Sky Alps began operating in June and now provides the first ever direct connection between Berlin and the popular holiday destination of South Tyrol. The newly founded airline operates a fleet of De Havilland Dash DH-8-Q400 aircraft, which is a modern, extra-quiet regional vehicle with space for 78 passengers. On-board catering with regional products, 15 kilograms of checked baggage and 8 kilograms of hand luggage are included in the ticket price.

Bolzano

The flight over the Alps offers spectacular views, and the approach on landing in Bolzano is framed by a magnificent mountain backdrop. The picturesque capital of South Tyrol was shaped for centuries by trade between Germany and Italy and to this day offers a unique mix of cultural and linguistic diversity. This is reflected in the historical sights of the city, the traffic signs and the three omnipresent languages of German, Italian and Ladin. Bolzano is the cultural centre of South Tyrol, and while strolling through the old town you can discover numerous historical buildings and winding streets. The heart is the Laubengasse with its medieval arcades, here numerous pretty shops and cafés invite you to stop and shop. A visit to the “Man from the Ice” is also recommended: the glacier mummy Ötzi is on display in the South Tyrolean Archaeological Museum. As the gateway to the fantastic mountain world of the Dolomites, the city is also an ideal starting point for alpine hiking or cycling tours.
