Air Berlin

Air Berlin, which is headquartered in Berlin, is Germany’s second largest airline in terms of passengers. At the time of its founding in 1978, it was headquartered in Miami, Florida, for legal reasons regarding post World War II regulation of air traffic in and out of Berlin.

The airline joined the Oneworld alliance in 2012, and I first travelled with them in June 2013, on a Boeing 737-700 out of their home base at Tegel.
