earnings improvement 'shape & size'

20.09.2011

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


London, 20 September 2011 - Air Berlin PLC continues with the implementation of
its consolidation course and further outlines its earnings improvement program
`shape & size´.   The basis of the program is the improvement in processes and
the optimization of the entire organizational structure. 
A significant contribution is to be achieved through network and fleet
optimization. Air Berlin plans, inter alia, to reduce its current fleet of 170
aircraft to 152 in summer 2012.  With a reduction in flight hours of only four
percent productivity per aircraft will increase.   

With this package of measures Air Berlin intends to achieve an operating
improvement in results by Euro 200 million. 

In light of the actual, volatile, economic development, a statement with respect
to the further performance of the 2011 year is currently difficult to make.   

Air Berlin PLC will publish detailed information on the earnings improvement
program `shape & size´ on 21 September2011. This information will be available
on the Internet at ir.airberlin.com starting at 7:30 am (CEST).
