Ad hoc Notification pursuant to § 15 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)


London, 16 March 2012 - Air Berlin PLC has realised a group revenue of EUR 4.23
billion (2010: EUR 3.72 billion, 2010 pro-forma*: EUR 3.85 billion) in the
financial year 2011. The operating result (EBIT) declined from EUR -9.3 million
(pro-forma 2010*: EUR -16.7 million) in the previous year to EUR -247.0 million
in the financial year 2011.

EBITDAR decreased from EUR 618.5 million in the financial year 2010 (pro-forma
2010*: EUR 619.9 million) by 31.1% to EUR 425.9 million in the financial year
2011. This is mainly due to an increase in operating expenses from EUR 3.16
billion in the reporting year (2010 pro-forma*: EUR 3.28 billion) by 20.6% to
EUR 3.81 billion in the financial year 2011. Due to the introduction of the
German aviation tax (EUR 165.6 million) and the increase in fuel prices (EUR
229.2 million), Air Berlin PLC had to bear extraordinary charges of
approximately EUR 395 million.

The financial result improved from EUR -133.3 million (pro-forma 2010*: EUR 
-135.1 million) to EUR -111.9 million, mainly resulting from considerably lower
financial expenses.

Pre-tax earnings in the financial year 2011 amounted to EUR -358.8 million
compared to EUR -141.6 million in 2010 (pro-forma 2010*: EUR -150.7 million).
After a tax benefit in the amount of EUR 93.2 million, the net result for the
reporting year 2011 amounted to EUR -265.6 million compared to EUR -97.2 million
in the previous year (pro-forma 2010*: EUR -106.3 million). Earnings per share
based on the average number of 85.048 million shares outstanding thus amounted
to EUR -3.12 compared to EUR -1.14 in the previous year (both undiluted and
diluted).

As of 31 December 2011, Air Berlin PLC´s total assets amounted to EUR 2,270.2
million (previous year: EUR 2,370.1 million), its total equity amounted to EUR
259.9 million (previous year: EUR 505.3 million), and its net debt amounted to
EUR 813.0 million (previous year: EUR 489.3 million).

as well as the complete annual report as at 31 December 2011 on 16 March 2012.
