Air Berlin to end flights on 28th October

Air Berlin will end flights on 28th October at the latest and is encouraging employees to seek jobs elsewhere.

Bankrupt German airline, Air Berlin, says it is preparing to end flights by the end of this month.

In a letter to employees, the airline said that flights will no longer be possible after 28th October at the latest.

The move is not exactly a surprise, as Air Berlin filed for administration in August after its largest shareholder Etihad declared it would not be providing further financial support.

Lufthansa and UK budget airline easyJet are in talks to buy up chunks of the stricken airline. Any agreement will need a green light from European authorities.

Anyone who bought tickets after the airline filed for insolvency on 15th August 2017, will be either reimbursed for the purchase price or re-booked on an alternative flight.

However, customers who bought their ticket before Air Berlin filed for insolvency, may be out of luck. Those tickets cannot be reimbursed due to insolvency regulations.

They are advised to contact their travel insurance company.
