On Saturday, 2nd November, German Airways Invited us to take a look at their Embraer 190 with their brand new livery. The AOC´s WDL and LGW will both operate under the name “German Airways” from now. German Airways will continue as a Wet-lease and Charter Airline meaning, that their aircrafts can be chartered by Airlines or Companies and German Airways doesn’t sell any tickets.
From 1st May 2020 one of the Embraer E-190 will operate flights for Fly Bair which is an Airline owned by the airport of Bern, it will be mainly serving holiday destinations. The intention of Fly Bair is to attract more passengers to the airport of Bern, otherwise as announced at a press conference their is the possibility of the airport going bankrupt, the airport has started a crowdfounding campaign to make the launch of their new Airline possible.
Besides Lufthansa, WDL is the oldest operating Airline in Germany, it was founded in 1955. The change to the new name should lead to a better recognition of the Airline and the name reflects the the german roots of WDL and LGW in combination with a good “made in Germany” image.
The following Diashow includes pictures of their Aircrafts and of its cabins:
