CORRECTED-Woehrl wants to team up with another bidder to buy Air Berlin

(Corrects lead to show Woehrl wants Air Berlin to become a charter carrier, not an aircraft leasing company)

FRANKFURT, Aug 31 (Reuters) - German aviation investor Hans Rudolf Woehrl wants to tie up with another bidder, preferably Lufthansa to buy up insolvent airline Air Berlin and turn it into a charter carrier, his firm Intro said.

“Unfortunately the answer he has received (from Lufthansa) is that it currently does not want to hold talks for legal reasons,” Intro said in a statement on Thursday. (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Arno Schuetze)
