"We are a quality airline and a smart alternative to the competition for leisure and business travelers alike. Our extensive flight schedule and the new connections to North America enable us to strengthen our position as market leaders in Dusseldorf and Berlin. Frequent flyers can use their topbonus miles for upgrades to business class or an XL seat and enjoy our onboard comfort to the fullest," said airberlin Chief Executive Officer Stefan Pichler.

For the sixth consecutive year airberlin’s frequent flyer program, topbonus, has been named the frequent flyer program offering the largest number of award flight seats
by the well-known US consulting firm IdeaWorks Company who came to this conclusion following the evaluation of thousands of booking requests on the websites of 25 frequent flyer programs in March 2016. The results for the travel period from June to October 2015 formed the basis of the evaluation. Other contenders for the award included many of the world’s largest frequent flyer programs.

topbonus continues to attract members from all over the world and offers business travelers multiple levels of membership and attractive incentives such as additional baggage, priority boarding and the ease of accruing and redeeming mileage with airberlin and its oneworld® partners.
