Airberlin on October 28, 2016 operated its final Boeing 737 revenue flight with its in-house Airberlin crew members.
The final flight was operated with the pictured Boeing 737-86J D-ABMP (msn 37779) between Munich and Berlin (Tegel) as flight BER419E (AB6208). The two remaining Airberlin-owned Boeing 737-800s are now out service with the pictured D-ABMP in maintenance at Budapest (ferried on October 31, 2016 TXL-BUD) and the other (D-ABBK), has been parked at Berlin (Tegel) since October 21, 2016.
Now all of the remaining AB-painted Boeing 737s (five Boeing 737-700s and eight 737-800s) are operated under contract by TUIfly (Germany) with their crew members.
Airberlin expects to remove the last TUIfly-operated Boeing 737 in the near future as it moves towards an all Airbus fleet.
