Airline investor Woehrl formally indicates interest in Air Berlin

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - INTRO-Verwaltungs GmbH, the group controlled by airline investor Hans Rudolf Woehrl, has formally indicated its interest in taking over Air Berlin (AB1.DE), it said in a statement on Friday.

    “The aim of the offer is to preserve Air Berlin as a whole and continue to operate it as an independent airline,” INTRO said, adding the offer was backed by partners and financial investors, whom it did not name.

    Woehrl made a name for himself in Germany’s aviation world when he bought German airline Deutsche BA from British Airways -- now part of IAG (ICAG.L) - for 1 euro ($1.17) in 2003.
