Ad-hoc-release pursuant to § 15 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)

London, 18 May 2010 - Air Berlin´s total revenue in the first quarter of the 2010 financial year increased compared to the first quarter of 2009 due to the acquisition of the TUIfly City Carrier business by 4.5 per cent from EUR 661.2 million to EUR 690.9 million (Q1 2009 pro-forma*: EUR 714.2 million).

Despite the cold and long-lasting winter, Air Berlin successfully reduced its total operational expenditures (after taking into account its acquisition of the TUIfly City Carrier business), which was mainly due to reduced costs for jet fuel. Accordingly the EBITDAR has increased to EUR 44.1 million.(Q1 2009: EUR 27.1 million, pro-forma: EUR 30.2 million).

The result from operating activities (EBIT) reached EUR -98.6 million compared to EUR -87.3 million in 2009 (pro forma: EUR -107.6 million). The pre-tax earnings amounted to EUR -125.5 million (Q1 2009: EUR -118.6 million, pro-forma: EUR -139.0 million).

Net results for the first three months of 2010 amount to EUR -93.6 million as compared to EUR -88.4 million in the first quarter 2009 (pro-forma: EUR -108.9 million).

Air Berlin will publish detailed information on its first quarter results as well as a complete interim report as of 31 March 2010 on 20 May 2010. This information will be available starting at 7:30 a.m. (CEST) on the Internet at ir.airberlin.com.
