IT is 'increasingly likely' that Air Berlin will pull out of Jersey this summer, according to Ports of Jersey.

Air Berlin are unlikely to fly to Jersey this summer

Authorities are yet to receive confirmation that the airline will be flying to the Island and as a result have said that it is now unlikely that its links with Hanover, Stuttgart and Berlin will continue in 2017.

Discussions are now under way with other operators and Visit Jersey with a view to supplementing the services.

Air Berlin is also understood to have pulled out of Guernsey. It was reported this week that a deal between loss-making Air Berlin, which is part-owned by Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, and rival firm Lufthansa for the latter to lease 38 crewed planes had been approved by the German competition watchdog.

The deal was described as a 'financial lifeline' to the struggling Air Berlin.
