Germania is a German airline with a history that goes back more than 30 years. It was founded in Cologne in 1986 and now has its headquarters in Berlin. The aircraft, in their green and white livery, carry more than four million passengers a year to holiday destinations, friends or family. Together with Germania Flug AG from Switzerland and Bulgarian Eagle, the airline mainly operates flights with a regional focus, with the majority flying beyond major hubs. From those regional airports, Germania primarily flies to popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean. Furthermore, with its instinct for market opportunities, Germania has always offered flights to less conventional destinations. The airline’s route network includes more than 60 destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. During summer 2018, Germania’s fleet will increase to up to 37 aircraft.
Germania is an independent airline. It operates under its own name on an ever-increasing number of scheduled routes that can be booked directly. The airline also handles many flights on behalf of leading tour operators. In addition, Germania offers ad-hoc charter, wet-lease and event flights, and has extensive experience in all these areas. The airline also operates staff shuttles on behalf of major European blue-chip companies.
Germania flies to a wide range of out-of-the-ordinary destinations and is consequently associated with the VFR (Visiting Friends & Relatives) travel sector. For families in many different regions, the airline offers connections to less visited destinations that are off the beaten tourist track. Many passengers can therefore benefit from Germania’s intercultural offering.
In addition to its commitment to the German and Swiss markets, Germania operates on a wider, international level. For instance, from Pristina, Germania flies to several European destinations, such as Paris and Copenhagen. Furthermore, the airline offers connections between Beirut and Stockholm, while Toulouse has also become an important base for Germania. Building on this network, Germania is increasing its competitive strength in Europe.
Germania Technik Brandenburg GmbH (GTB), which is part of Germania Group, is responsible for the maintenance and efficient operations of the green and white fleet. Safety and reliability are Germania’s top priorities. Since 2010, the airline has been IOSA-certified by IATA, the International Air Transport Association. GTB operates hangars in Berlin-Schönefeld, Bremen and Erfurt, and also carries out maintenance work at Berlin-Tegel, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Munich, Nuremberg, Rostock-Laage and Hamburg-Finkenwerder airports.
