Airberlin introduces a microsite catering to LGBT travelers in North America
Airberlin announced on Wednesday, February 15 the launch of a new mircosite catering to LGBT travelers in North America. Airberlin flies nonstop from San Francisco International to gay-friendly Dusseldorf. That service began nearly two years ago. Both Dusseldorf and Cologne have large gay communities, so travelers should feel comfortable.
Airberlin is now providing the airline’s valued lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender customers with additional travel resources when planning travel to Europe and introduces its new microsite airberlin.com/lgbt. The microsite features information on LGBT travel to Europe and a calendar of events, providing customers with highlights about some of the most popular LGBT happenings in Europe.
To celebrate the launch of the microsite together with its U.S. customers, airberlin will launch a “Pride” sweepstakes between the months of March and June, 2012. One lucky winner and a companion will fly for free from any Airberlin gateway in the U.S. to Germany. Among airberlin’ s worldwide destinations are many cities favored by the LGBT community, such as Berlin, Cologne, Munich, London, Barcelona (Sitges), Ibiza, Mykonos, Venice, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna, Zurich and more.
It's great to see more airlines participating in LGBT travel.
