In the 1990s weekly service had been generally restricted to a few turboprop flights to destinations within Germany, as well as occasional charter flights to warm-weather destinations. Since 2000, several new airlines have commenced service to Dortmund, many with mainline jets. Most of the air traffic today is by low cost airlines operating Boeing 737 or Airbus A318/19/20/21 series aircraft to warm-weather destinations and business centers. The first mass carrier at Dortmund Airport was Air Berlin, which began flights to London, Milan, and Vienna in 2002, supplementing its leisure routes to the Mediterranean. EasyJet made Dortmund a hub in 2004, and Germanwings will follow in 2007. Air Berlin eventually ceased most non-leisure routes from Dortmund in 2005, but easyJet and Germanwings have taken these over or will do so by the Summer 2007 timetable.
