DSC_0627American Airlines and Air Berlin will likely discontinue their codeshare agreement come next year.

The partnership will probably end by the end of March 2017, said several people close to the situation.

Air Berlin first began codeshare flights with American in 2010, as the carrier prepared to become a member of the oneworld alliance, which American is also a part of.

Last month, Air Berlin announced that it would begin a new partnership with Lufthansa. The agreement involves a six-year agreement under which Lufthansa will wet-lease as many as 40 aircraft that will be operated by Air Berlin crews for both Eurowings and Austrian Airlines.

Air Berlin currently serves over 140 destinations worldwide. The carrier was founded in 1978 and has its headquarters in Berlin.
