Hello FlightReporters
After finishing my university exams in mid-July I started to plan many activities for September
A dear friend and I decided to make a long weekend in Berlin around mid-September
He had never been there while I've visited it in 2014
For me it would have been an occasion to see the German capital with a different eye
A couple of days before my journey to Vietnam and Cambodia we booked the flight and the hotel
The best solution was with easyJet from FCO to TXL
Departure was set for Thursday 12nd September

After a very pleasant weekend in Berlin it's time to come back home
Our flight was scheduled for 17:10 of Sunday
In order to be at the airport with enough time we left by taxi around 15
It takes around 20 minutes to get from our hotel in Charlottenburg to Berlin-Tegel "Otto Lilienthal" Airport
Hexagon-shaped Terminal A-B

Since our flight departed from Terminal C, we took a walkway from Terminal A-B

The cramped warehouse-style departure hall was quite crowded

The boarding gate, C42, was already showed

photo 1-txl-fco-10

Having a baggage to check-in we went straight to easyJet desks
Passengers with boarding pass could use automated bag drop
The machine is very easy to use and in about 5 minutes we had our baggage checked

Time to proceed to gate area C38-51

photo 1-txl-fco-12

Security checkpoint was a bit messy
There was almost no space for the queue and some lanes were close
Moreover the control was made with a bodyscanner
It took around 20 minutes to get airside

photo 1-txl-fco-13

The departure lounge looked like a warehouse, it was full, cramped and dark

Our gate area

Even if there was no agent at the gate people started to queue
Boarding was scheduled to end at 16:40, but actually it started at 16:50

Our aircraft:
easyJet Europe Airbus A320-200, OE-ICZ, delivered to Avianca Brasil in June '15 (4.3 years old)
It was later transfered to easyJet
The plane is equipped with 180 seats, all in Y, and winglets

Thank you for the attention!

Berlin - TXL


Rome - FCO



As for the inbound flight EZY service was decent

TXL is a really creepy airport, I hope the situation will change with Brandeburg's opening

FCO demonstrates always to be a good airport. It really deserves Best in Europe award!
