Government figures show that approximately 2 million British visitors come to Germany each year. Of these, approximately 500 die whilst in Germany. This means there is a 1 in 4000 chance of a British visitor dying in Germany.
Easyjet has 2 daily flights per day to Berlin from Luton Airport, 3 from Gatwick and 1 each from Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester. Assuming that each flight carries about 120 people (a very conservative estimate) and that half of these are British, that means 9 x 60 = 540 Brits come to Berlin each day. Or about 200 000 per year.
So 50 Easyjet passengers per year who come to Berlin from Britain will die in Germany. That’s one passenger per week. This would be terrifying were one not a Zombie.
