Insolvency of NIKI and Air Berlin

Information for consumers

Many consumers are waiting for news about Air Berlin and NIKI. Unfortunately, patience is a much needed good regarding both airlines.  A short summary of the current status:

Registration of claims at Air Berlin

Consumers who want to register a claim at the insolvency proceedings of Air Berlin should have received a letter from the competent lawyer Dr. Lucas Flöther by now. It explains the further steps and entails the official form for registration.

If you didn't get such a letter, you can request it online on the website www.airberlin-inso.de. The form has to be sent by post to the office of Dr. Flöther. Please note: The deadline for submissions is already on February 1st! Make sure to send the letter with enough time buffer for the mailing route.

The address of the insolvency administrator is:

  • Air Berlin Gruppe / Lucas Flöther
    Postfach 10 30 10
    18005 Rostock

Whether there is a realistic chance to actually receive any money is questionable, given the huge amount of creditors.

Uncertainty concerning NIKI

Customers of NIKI have to be even more patient as the insolvency proceedings are not yet opened. The partial sale to IAG (International Airlines Group) doesn't change the situation for consumers. Like before with Air Berlin, they have to wait if or when the proceedings will start. Only then can claims be registered.

The competent insolvency administrator is once again Dr. Flöther. Therefore you will find information regarding NIKI on the website www.airberlin-inso.de as well. Furthermore, the law office of Dr. Flöther publishes respective press releases on its website (available only in German language).

Will air passenger rights change soon?

A new attempt for revised passenger rights in air travel is here. The initiative could lead to the replacement of the old Air Passenger Rights Regulation, especially in the area of delays and flight cancellations. This means that air travellers in the EU will get more rights in the future - but also fewer in certain cases.

Worldwide, the airline industry is experiencing a massive pent-up demand for passenger flights. Expensive fuel prices and, above all, an acute shortage of staff resulted in thousands of flight cancellations and chaotic conditions at airports.

Strike: Airline has to refund says ECJ

A decision by the ECJ has once again clearly strengthened air passenger rights. If a flight is cancelled or significantly delayed due to an announced strike by airline staff, passengers may have a right to compensation.
