Air Berlin About Air Berlin

The company Air Berlin was founded in Germany in 1978 under the name of Air Berlin USA, by a former captain of the American company Pan Am. It was then based in Oregon, in the United States.In the 1980s, it completely renewed its fleet which therefore consisted only of Boeing 737 300 and 737 400. Following the reunification of Germany in 1990, German investors bought back the shares of the company which was then registered. in Germany and renamed Air Berlin Gmbh.In 2006, the company went public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and acquired DBA, a German airline, which allowed it to increase the number of destinations served. The takeover of the charter company LTU the following year enabled Air Berlin to offer its customers long-haul flights for the first time.Air Berlin was one of the main airlines in Europe. It carried around 20 million passengers per year to nearly 170 destinations.

On August 15, 2017, Air Berlin declared its bankruptcy, but its flights continue with a loan from the German government.
