The Zeitfracht subsidiary German Airways has extended the lease for the hangar at Cologne/Bonn Airport on a long-term basis. There had previously been speculation as to whether the carrier could "move" to the group's own Rostock/Laage Airport.
German Airways emerged from the WDL and is therefore the second oldest airline in the Federal Republic of Germany. One specializes in providing ACMI and charter services. Not only is the company headquarters located at Cologne/Bonn Airport, but also the maintenance work on the fleet, which currently consists of eight Embraer 190, is carried out here. This is the so-called base maintenance.
"The extension of the rental agreement for our hangar at Cologne/Bonn Airport is an important step for German Airways," says Maren Wolters, Managing Director of German Airways. “In this way, we can further expand our location advantage and offer our customers the highest level of service and security. Cologne/Bonn Airport is a strategic location for us and the contract extension reflects our long-term commitment to the region.”
"We are pleased that German Airways is staying true to our location," says Thilo Schmid, CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH. "With the long-term contract extension, German Airways and our airport are consolidating their long-standing partnership, which will continue to bear fruit in the future."
