DBA, the former British Airways subsidiary, is returning to the UK market with the introduction today (Monday 10 November) of a three times daily service from Gatwick to Berlin Tegel. Munich-based, and now independently owned, its B737-300s offer 136 seats in a one class cabin and DBA say that they will be very competitive in the market with a simplified one way fare structure and the availability of a fully flexible ticket claimed to be 60% below British Airways unrestricted fare from Heathrow. DBA will offer allocated seating and will provide a purchasable range of snacks and refreshments including freshly cut sandwiches, alcoholic and soft drinks under its Jet Set caf” brand. Passengers travelling on fully flexible tickets will be offered vouchers in exchange for beverages or snacks. Supporting dba with sales and marketing in the UK is British Airline Management, headed by managing director Paul Moore.
