Description of booking process

Starting your airberlin flight booking

You can start your airberlin flight booking process via airberlin’s home page or by navigating from Flight  ? Booking. Here you can select your point of departure and destination as well as the relevant dates for the flight. You can also determine whether you want to book an outbound and/or inbound flight. Clicking on “Next” takes you to the next step in the booking procedure.

Selecting the flight times and number of passengers

At the second stage of the booking process you will see a table showing the available flights on the selected dates. The table shows the net fare as well as any further associated costs.  You can select a specific flight (date and time) for your booking. The price summary below the table shows the total price of the flight, including taxes, charges and fuel surcharge. Before moving on to step three of the booking procedure, you can specify the number of passengers (adults, children, infants).

Entering passenger details

At step three of the booking procedure you will be asked to enter your passenger details. Please note that if children or infants will be travelling with you, you must enter the date of birth of the adult accompanying those children or infants. To apply for a family or residents’ discount, please click on the appropriate link and enter the required details in the designated fields.  The same applies to entering your topbonus number as well as to redeeming a discount voucher.  

Depending on the route you have selected, you can add additional services (gourmet meal, Rail&Fly with Deutsche Bahn (German Railways),travel insurance) at this step.

Price box:

In the right-hand column of the web page you will see a summary showing the current costs of your flight (outbound and inbound flights, taxes and charges, other costs). The prices are updated if you add additional services to your booking. These price details will continue to be displayed in the same place for the remaining steps of your booking procedure.
