An Air Berlin A320 (registration D-ABDX) flight #AB3928 from Düsseldorf which arrived in Reykjavik at 10:55pm yesterday, was grounded at the airport due to nonpayment of the Airport charges. Flight was cancelled and the passengers stranded.
The charges was due for the period prior to the declaration of insolvency and therefore the Airlines should have paid it. If one fails to pay the bills repercussions had to be faced.
Airport’s view is that though the action inevitably affects the passengers who had booked a flight with Air Berlin, this action is considered to be the final recourse to ensure payment for services that have been already provided
