Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel) and TUIfly (Germany) (X3/Cologne/Bonn) have given up plans for cross-shareholding between the two companies. But TUI Travel has taken a 9.9% stake in Air Berlin by acquiring new shares for 33.5 million EUR and will go ahead with the proposed transfer of scheduled routes from TUIfly to Air Berlin. The transaction has also been approved by the German authorities and will see TUIfly operating all 11 B737-700s and 2 B737-800s on behalf of Air Berlin as of October 25 and an additional 14th aircraft as of next summer season.
