Lufthansa announced that it plans to launch new long-haul service to the United States, taking over routes previously operated by Air Berlin as the bankrupt carrier is forced to discontinue many of its flights.

The carrier will start to offer flights linking Berlin with New York City on November 8. The service will be operated five times a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, using Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

The start of the service will mark the first time since 2001 that Lufthansa will have a long-haul aircraft in Berlin.

Also on November 8, the airline will begin flights between Düsseldorf and Miami. The carrier will operate the route three days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, using Airbus A330-300s.

In addition, Eurowings, a regional carrier and subsidiary of Lufthansa, plans to expand its long-haul operation as well, with the addition of new flights from both Cologne and Düsseldorf. The carrier will also place a seventh aircraft into long-haul service on November 8, which the carrier will use on flights from Düsseldorf to the Caribbean.
