Moscow (dpa) - German low-cost airline Air Berlin said Thursday it would be operating flights to Moscow from five German airports from 2007.

Air Berlin flights to Moscow would be available from Berlin, Dusseldorf, Munich, Nuremberg and Stuttgart from January 1, the head of Air Berlin in Russia, Guenter Seibt, said.

The Nuremberg-Moscow route is new in the schedule. Air Berlin is now offering all flights previously offered by dba and Germania Express, which it acquired earlier this year, under its own name.

Air Berlin had already carried out a test flight to St Petersburg on Monday, Seibt said.

After acquiring dba and Germania Express and a one-quarter stake in Austrian low-cost airline NIKI, Air Berlin is now Germany's second-largest airline after Lufthansa.
