Rail + Flight Introduction
Hainan Airlines has established cooperation with Deutsche Bundesbahn, providing joint sales services for the train segments from Berlin to the railways in Germany. Passengers flying on China-Berlin international flights operated by Hainan Airlines can enjoy a more comfortable and convenient experience and a wider transportation network.
Passengers who have purchased tickets for China-Berlin international flights operated by Hainan Airlines can also purchase the one-way or round-trip ticket for the railways operated by Deutsche Bundesbahn in Germany with through ticket price, connecting to major cities in Germany. The class of train segment and free baggage allowance are the same as the flight segment. After purchasing a through ticket, passengers can exchange for train ticket on the designated website www.rail-checkin.com, or at the self-service ticket machine at Deutsche Bundesbahn railway station, which is convenient and efficient.
