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


London, 14 May 2012 - Air Berlin PLC group's revenue increased by 4.0 per cent
to EUR 812.9 million in the first quarter of 2012 as compared to EUR 781.6
million in the previous year's first quarter. 

Despite considerable higher expenses as a result of rising oil prices in the
relevant quarter operating expenses increased by 1.5 per cent only from EUR
971.6 million to EUR 986.0 million due to the successful implementation of the
shape & size efficiency program.

The EBITDAR increased from EUR -25.7 million to EUR 7.2 million in the first
quarter of 2012. Operating result (EBIT) improved from EUR -188.3 million to EUR
-149.3 million. The financial result decreased from EUR 14.6 million to EUR -3.6
million.

Pre-tax earnings in the first quarter of 2012 amounted to EUR -152.9 million,
compared with EUR -173.7 million in the first quarter of 2011. After a tax
benefit amounting to EUR 50.0 million, net result for the first quarter of 2012
amounts to EUR -102.9 million, as compared to EUR -120.6 million in the first
quarter of 2011. Earnings per share based on the average number of 108.3 million
shares outstanding in the first quarter of 2012 thus amounted to EUR 
-0.95, compared with EUR -1.42 in the previous year (both basic and diluted). 

As of 31 March 2012, Air Berlin PLC's total assets amounted to EUR 2,511 million
(Q1 2011: EUR 2,592 million), its total equity amounted to EUR 210.4 million (Q1
