Air Berlin Cancels Dozens of Flights after Pilots Call in Sick

BERLIN – Germany’s second-largest airline, Air Berlin, was forced to cancel dozens of flights on Tuesday due to an unusually high number of pilots calling in sick, the insolvent company said in a statement.

German press estimated that over 100 national and international flights were to be grounded, affecting schedules at Berlin’s Tegel airport, Düsseldorf, Munich and others.

“Airberlin is currently seeing an exceptional high number of sickness reports of their pilots. For this reason a number of flights will have to be canceled today,” the company said in a statement on its website, advising those due to travel on an Air Berlin flight to call a customer service number before arriving at the airport.

Air Berlin filed for bankruptcy on Aug. 15 after it lost support of a former shareholder Ethiad, the United Arab Emirates’ second-largest carrier.

Several corporations, including airline giant Lufthansa, are expected to submit bids for Air Berlin’s assets before a deadline slated for Sept. 15.

Air Berlin continues to operate thanks to a 150 million euro ($180 million) credit loan from the German government.
