airberlin to cease operating as part of oneworld from 28 October

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

air berlin tailairberlin will cease participating in the oneworld® alliance with effect from the close of business on 27 October 2017, following the filing by Air Berlin PLC & Co. Luftverkehrs KG’s (“airberlin”) for the opening of insolvency proceedings over its assets.

airberlin’s affiliate NIKI – which joined oneworld alongside airberlin in March 2012 – will no longer fly as part of oneworld at the same time.

oneworld will continue to serve more than 1,000 airports in almost 160 countries worldwide. The withdrawal of airberlin and NIKI from the alliance will mean a dozen destinations – half of them regional cities in Austria and Germany and the rest southern European holiday spots – leaving the alliance’s global network.

oneworld will maintain a strong presence in airberlin’s Germany and Austria home markets. Ten other oneworld member airlines serve a total of 13 destinations across the two countries, linking them with the alliance’s global network. Throughout Europe, oneworld member airlines will continue to fly to more than 230 destinations in some 40 countries.

A number of oneworld member airlines are making a tier-status matching offer to members of airberlin’s topbonus frequent flyer programme, enabling them to maintain their Emerald, Sapphire or Ruby status when flying with any oneworld member airline.
