*At EBITDAR level

Air Berlin: “Although total revenues are expected to exceed the previous year’s level, airberlin will not be able to return to positive EBIT figures in the current financial year. In light of the current volatile economic development, a further statement with respect to airberlin’s performance in 2011 is currently difficult to make. Even though “Shape & Size” may cause additional restructuring costs in 2011, earnings next year will benefit from the implementation of the programme.” Company statement.
