6-month report/Q2 figures

28.08.2008

London, 28 August 2008 - For the second quarter of 2008, the turnover of the Air Berlin Group increased from EUR *814.8 to EUR 869.5 million, i.e. a 6.7 percent increase over the 2nd quarter of the previous year. Operating income was adversely affected by the transaction costs and the consultancy fees related to the cancellation of the Condor acquisition, and the high start-up costs for the routes to China. As a result, EBIT decreased from EUR *18.7 to EUR 13.8 million. Net consolidated income improved from EUR *6.0 to EUR 8.3 million. Despite the challenges stemming from the weakening global economy and the development of kerosene prices, the Board of Directors remains optimistic about achieving a positive operating income for the current year. Details on the 2008 Quarterly Report will be published on our website on 28 August 2008 as of 8:30 a.m. www.ir.airberlin.com
