Airplanes and carriers. Air Berlin failure: request of admission to the passive State

Rome, Italy - And special offers for the European passengers

The European Consumers centre Italy communicates that: "The Court of Charlottenburg gave last November 1st, 2017 the green light to the failure procedure of the German carrier Air Berlin (procedure nr 36a IN 4295/17). Some airlines, as for example Lufthansa, offer to the passengers for the return flights purchased by Air Berlin and cancelled, tickets with a 50% discount according to some conditions. The customers who have a credit towards Air Berlin are invited to send a request to the insolvency administrator (Flöther & Wissing, Insolvenzverwaltung, Wallstraße 14 A, 21019 Berlin) within next February 1st, 2018. The possibility to obtain a refund is really low due to the economical situation in which it is and the circumnstance that the credit vaunted by the customers is not a preferential credit. The request has to to include: - the ticket price; - the reason for which the refund is requested (for flight cancellation); - references of the flight (number of reservation, flight date). Lufthansa, Eurowings, Swiss and Austrian Airlines offer return tickets at discounted prices at the following conditions: - the ticket of the cancelled flight has been purchased before August 15, 2017 (date in which Air Berlin has presented the application for bankruptcy); - the return flight would have been served between October 28 and Novermber 15, 2017; - the discounted tariff is not applicable for the domestic flights of the Germany; - the passengers reserved to pay the entire price for the new tickets and ask refund of 50% later. It is useful to consider that passengers have to to book new flight on website of one of the carriers above mentioned and that the same must be necessary operated by the chosen airline and not by their partner. The passengers will be reserved to send both tickets (that of the cancelled flight by Air Berlin and that one acquired later with the airlines indicated) to obtain refund of the half of the prices of new ticket. The refund request has to to be sent to the airline by December 15, 2017. Further information are available on Lufthansa website".
