BERLIN, April 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- As a result of the volcanic eruption in Iceland and the volcanic ash that this has released into the atmosphere, the civil aviation safety authorities have shut off major sections of European airspace and the airports in Germany. It is not foreseeable when these restrictions will be lifted. Consequently Air Berlin is cancelling all flights - except for some domestic Spanish flights - until 8 p.m. on 17th April 2010 inclusive.

Passengers affected by these cancellations are requested not to travel to the airport. Any flights until Sunday, 18th April 2010 inclusive can be rebooked or cancelled free of charge (for flights until 31st May 2010).
