The German airline German Airways wants to be in the air with nine aircraft in the 2023 summer flight schedule. It currently operates seven Embraer 190 regional jets.
A spokesman confirmed the planned increase to nine machines on request to Aviation.Direct. German Airways specializes in providing ACMI and charter services. Scheduled flights on your own account are not offered. The fleet currently consists of seven Embraer 190s and one Pilatus PC-12.
According to the Zeitfracht subsidiary, nine E2023s are to be in the air in the 190 summer flight schedule. The company will remain true to the business model and use them in wet leases for other carriers or in charters for tour operators, tour operators and other clients. A sister company of German Airways is Rostock-Laage Airport, which was taken over by Zeitfracht some time ago.
When asked which clients will use the fleet in the 2022/23 winter flight schedule, the German Airways spokesman replied: “We are concluding long-term contracts, so major changes by the current clients (e.g. ITA, KLM) are not to be expected at the moment. The exact allocation is in planning. As before, we will continue to operate with two charter aircraft (sports teams, cruise lines, corporate shuttle, etc.). Of course, we don't rule out the possibility of new partners joining us."
