Germany’s second-largest airline, airberlin’s extensive network extends to over 160 destinations around the world. Hubs are located in Berlin and Dusseldorf, with Munich, Nuremberg, Palma de Mallorca, Vienna, and Zurich as its focus cities.
Originally airberlin was an American company until it changed ownership following the reunification of Germany. The airline has grown steadily during its three decades in business and now boasts a fleet of more than 140 aircraft and carries more than 30 million passengers a year. In 2012 airberlin became a full member of the Oneworld alliance.
The headquarters of airberlin is, predictably, in Berlin and the airline is owned by Air Berlin GmbH which is a publicly traded company on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The airline’s planes are recognizable by their white fuselage and red tail with airberlin emblazoned in red down the side of the aircraft and the company’s logo in white on the tail of the aircraft.
