Berlin – Air Berlin now offers kosher food on all flights to and from Israel. Instead of a sand-wich, airberlin passengers have a choice of three different bagels. In addition to the complimentary bagel, a hot meal created by top chef Franz Raneburger can be pre-ordered and is available at an extra charge. The choice here is between a vegetarian meal and a meat dish. All ingredients are kosher or “la-mehadrin”. The bagels and hot meals are produced by “Top Kosher & Gourmet”, the new catering service, and inspected by Rabbi Yitshak Ehrenberg of the Jewish Community in Berlin.
Airberlin operates nonstop flights from Düsseldorf (2 flights per week), Berlin (3 flights per week), Cologne/Bonn (2 flights per week) and Munich (2 flights per week) to Tel Aviv. Fares start at 99 euros one way, including taxes, charges and miles, but excluding aviation tax. There are also feeder flights from various German cities. Flights to Tel Aviv can be booked online (airberlin.com), by calling the airline’s Ser-vice Centre (Tel.: 01805-737 800; € 0.14/min. from a landline, mobile phone rates not exceeding € 0.42/min.) any time and through travel agents.
