German airline for oneworld

AIR BERLIN, Europe's fifth largest airline and Germany's second biggest carrier, is to join the oneworld alliance.  Austria's NIKI, an Air Berlin group member, will become an affiliate member.  The airline is expected to start flying as part of oneworld in early 2012 – just weeks before the opening of the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport, which is being built as a major new hub for Europe.  As an important player in the European air travel market, Air Berlin serves around 160 destinations in some 40 countries.  Last year it carried 28m passengers operating a fleet of 165 aircraft, including Austria's NIKI.  Members of Air Berlin's frequent flyer programme will be able to earn and redeem rewards on any oneworld carrier and the airlines will begin to work together from this winter onwards.
