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

London, 11 November 2011 - Air Berlin PLC announces that it will acquire bonds
of the EUR 220 million 1.5% Convertible Bonds issued by Air Berlin Finance B.V.
in 2007 (ISIN DE000A0NQ9H6) in an aggregate nominal amount of EUR 125.2 million.
This will occur after the period in which holders of bonds were invited to offer
the sale of their still outstanding bonds (aggregate nominal amount of EUR 136
million) to Air Berlin PLC expired on 10 November 2011 (see the ad hoc
notification dated 28 October 2011). The purchase price including accrued but
unpaid interest amounts to EUR 99,889.34 for each of the 1,252 bonds in a
nominal amount of EUR 100,000. In accordance with IFRS, this results in a
one-time financial expense of EUR 1.1 million. As a result of the repurchase,
the number of ordinary shares into which the holders may convert their
outstanding bonds will be reduced from approximately 6.05 million to
approximately 0.48 million.
