On 27 October, Air Berlin concluded operations after 38 years. The carrier ended its flying with a special flight from Munich to Berlin, which operated with the callsign BER4EVR.
Air Berlin staff, media, and onlookers gathered in Munich to send off the final flight with a water cannon salute. The flight, AB6210 flew with a special one-time callsign BER4EVR.
The flight departed normally, then upon reaching Berlin made two circling passes over the city before landing at Berlin-Tegel Airport.

The aircraft was greeted not by a standard dual water cannon salute, but by a quadruple cannon salute and hundreds of airline and airport employees on the apron.
