Almost three years after the bankruptcies of Air Berlin and Niki as well as Topbonus, the last relic disappears for good with the “Air Berlin & Niki Mastercard”. Wirecard Bank AG gave notice to all customers.

On September 3, 2020, one of Air Berlin's last relics, Niki and Topbonus, will disappear for good. Wirecard Bank AG, which is part of the insolvent Wirecard AG, announced on Friday that the “Air Berlin & Niki Mastercard” will be discontinued on September 3, 2020.

In contrast to other issuers, Wirecard Bank AG continued the credit card product even after the bankruptcies of Topbonus, Air Berlin and Niki and even continued to issue cards in the design of the former airlines. This will soon be over, because all cardholders were formally terminated on Friday.

Wirecard Bank AG did not announce how many credit card holders are affected by this measure. The Mastercard was launched after Raiffeisenbank International AG left the company in order to be able to launch a successor credit card product in Austria. However, this could also be ordered by German customers.
