Air Berlin set to axe Alitalia wet-lease
As part of the ongoing rationalization of its operations, Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel) will shortly discontinue a wet-lease agreement with fellow Etihad Airways equity partner Alitalia (AZ, Rome Fiumicino).
At present, the bankrupt Italian carrier operates two A320-200s - EI-DSX (msn 3643) and EI-DSZ (msn 3695) - for the bankrupt German carrier on flights from Berlin Tegel to each of Budapest, Gothenburg Landvetter, Milan Linate, Munich, and Rome Fiumicino. However, according to an Air Berlin communique, this partnership will cease from September 28 onwards when the aircraft are returned to Alitalia.
Under bankruptcy proceedings instituted in August of this year, Air Berlin has returned multiple aircraft to lessors amid concerns about its short-term financial buoyancy. As recently reported, Air Berlin's entire fleet of A330-200s will be returned to their respective owners through October 15 when it is scheduled to end all longhaul operations. Its last Dusseldorf-Los Angeles Int'l service will operate on September 25 followed by last flights from Dusseldorf to San Francisco, CA on October 14 and New York JFK, Miami Int'l and Fort Myers Southwest Florida on October 15.
Concerning its narrowbody fleet, Lufthansa Group and easyJet (U2, London Luton) have been selected as preferred bidders and are currently in talks with Air Berlin's creditors' committee. The negotiations are expected to last through to October 12 by which time a decision is expected to be made.
Ahead of the deadline, the Lufthansa Supervisory Board, on Tuesday, September 26, gave its consent to the proposed acquisition of sixty-one Air Berlin aircraft for placement with its Eurowings (EW, Dusseldorf) low-cost unit.
Lufthansa said in a statement the aircraft being eyed include forty-one A320 family jets as well as the twenty Dash 8-400s currently in service with LGW - Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter (HE, Dortmund).
"The acquisition of the aircraft is partly dependent on the successful conclusion of negotiations to acquire parts of the Air Berlin Group," it said. "The investments would be financed from existing liquid funds."
Lufthansa Group already wet-leases a total of thirty-seven aircraft from Air Berlin including five A320-200s in service for Austrian Airlines (OS, Vienna), and twenty-one A320-200s and eleven A319-100s in service for Eurowings.
For its part, Reuters reports easyJet's interest in Air Berlin concerns about 27-30 aircraft, presumably narrowbodies.
8th August 2017
Air Berlin has announced it has signed a co-operation agreement with jetBlue Airways wherein the German carrier's customers will be able to connect to thirty-one jetBlue destinations across the United States from hubs at New York JFK, Orlando Int'l, and Chicago O'Hare initially.
According to a press release, the first connecting flights will run from September 12.
“We are delighted that we have a new, strong partner at our side with jetBlue, in the important growth market in the USA. This is only the beginning of our co-operation. Together, we are working to extend our partnership in the coming months," Götz Ahmelmann, Air Berlin's Chief Commercial Officer, said.
The two carriers expected to cooperate through their respective frequent flyer programs in the future. Air Berlin has been forced to find a new US partner after a similar partnership with Oneworld alliance partner American Airlines had been terminated by its former US partner effective March 2017.

Air Berlin Reassuring Customers Deterred by Delays

Lufthansa has held talks with the Abu Dhabi government about the future of loss-making Air Berlin, its chief executive said on Friday, although debt and other obstacles to a takeover of its smaller rival remain.
Lufthansa Chief Executive Carsten Spohr traveled to Abu Dhabi this week as part of a business delegation accompanying German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Speaking on the sidelines of the group's annual shareholders meeting in Hamburg on Friday, Spohr said the Abu Dhabi government was aware that Air Berlin's debt, costs and anti-t
Air Berlin, 29 percent-owned by Abu Dhabi state-owned carrier Etihad, already leases 38 planes and crews to Lufthansa.
"The debt problem can only be resolved by the government of Abu Dhabi," Spohr said. Air Berlin is undergoing a deep restructuring. Together with the Lufthansa lease deal and plans to spin off leisure flights into a separate joint venture, its fleet is set to halve to around 75 planes.
Asked about a possible takeover of Air Berlin by Lufthansa on Friday, Walsh told analysts he was in favor of consolidation and was less likely than others to make a complaint to competition authorities."We will comment in a constructive way," Walsh said. "We won't try and create difficulties when it comes to consolidation, because we don't think that's a sensible thing to do."
