Company Information/Traffic Figures January 2013

Berlin, (euro adhoc) - In the first month of 2013, airberlin increased its
capacity utilization rate to 83.1 percent, i.e. an increase of 1.0 percentage
points over the previous year. In January 2013, Germany's second-largest airline
company welcomed a total of 1,757,109 flight-guests on board. By eliminating
unprofitable routes and optimizing flight schedules, airberlin reduced its
available seat kilometers in January in a targeted manner by 9.9 percent to
3,449.5 million.

For 2013, airberlin has changed the way it calculates its seat capacity
utilization. The capacity utilization calculation is now determined according to
the sector standard, and the revenue passenger kilometers (RPK) are compared to
the available seat kilometers (ASK). For the purpose of a yearly comparison, the
seat capacity utilization for 2012 was likewise calculated anew.
