Airberlin filed for bankruptcy last month, and is to close all of its long-haul routes to the Caribbean from 25 September due to cuts in its long-haul fleet.
Yesterday the airline said its entire Caribbean network will be closed, including flights from Dusseldorf to Curacao (Dutch Antilles), Cancun (Mexico), Havana and Varadero (Cuba), as well as Punta Cana and Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic). Airberlin has already announced closure of all of its long-haul routes from Berlin Tegel, on top of cuts to its Dusseldorf network.
Berlin-LAX and Berlin-SFO will now stop four weeks earlier on 1st October, along with Dusseldorf-Boston Logan.
It’s not been possible to determine what has happened to the A330’s employees on these routes just yet.
