Air Berlin https://www.airberlin.com/en/site/start.php

A vast majority of Air Berlin PLC & Co. Luftverkehrs KG’s flight operations under IATA airline code AB will cease as of 28 October 2017.We would like to take the opportunity to thank you all and say in our usual way "Tschüss, auf Wiedersehen and bye-bye".

Unfortunately I have bought the ticket for the company through a travel agent. When arriving to an airport, I knew the fact.

I do not know I can refund it from the company right now. It is sad that the travel agent did not inform me in advance.

Fortunately I made a decision to buy a ticket to same destination with different airline that is after 1 hour that I had bought. So, my travel schedule is not delayed.

This is a first time experience.

Everyone, take care to buy these airlines' ticket.

By the way, interestingly there is still Niki's advertisement in the airport.
