Company Information/Traffic Figures February 2011

Berlin (euro adhoc) - In February 2011, airberlin transported a total of 2,132,057 passengers, i.e. an increase of 1.0 percent. Due to the comprehensive cancellations of flights to Egypt and Tunisia, the number of passengers transported developed less favorably than in January 2011. The political unrest in Egypt and Tunisia caused several hundreds of February flights to be cancelled, reducing the number of passengers transported by a six-digit figure.

In February 2010, airberlin had welcomed 2,111,716 passengers on board. Fleet capacity utilization for February 2011 increased by 1.4 percentage points to 71.4 percent (February 2010: 70.0 percent). In comparison with the corresponding month of the previous year, fleet capacity was reduced by 1.0 percent.

For the period from January to February 2011, a total of 4,277,245 passengers traveled on airberlin's flight route network, i.e. 3.3 percent more than in the corresponding period of the previous year. Accumulated capacity utilization for the first two months of the year increased from 69.4 to 71.9 percent, i.e. an increase of 2.5 percentage points.
