The aircraft can be used in the Air Berlin Group´s fleet renewal program or, alternatively, for additional capacity in the long haul markets.  Financing for the aircraft will not be required until approximately 2011, when more significant pre delivery payments become due and Air Berlin will consider a number of options for external funding.
