airberlin is ending its Caribbean flight schedule from Dusseldorf on 25 September 2017.
This brings to an end flights to Curacao (Netherlands Antilles), Cancun (Mexico), Havana and Varadero (Cuba) as well as Punta Cana and Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic) from this date.
A few days ago, airberlin announced cancellations of a number of individual long-haul flights. These cancellations will also be brought forward to 25 September 2017. This affects connections between Berlin and Abu Dhabi, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as Dusseldorf and Boston. airberlin apologises for any inconvenience caused by the cancellations.
Background to today’s decision is a reduction of airberlin’s long haul fleet which became necessary due to the current preliminary insolvency proceedings.
airberlin’s fleet currently includes 17 Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft.
