COLOGNEThe German charter and wet-lease operator WDL Aviation has been rebranded as German Airway. The airline has also changed its ICAO code, the name of the airline on its AOC, and its callsign.



"With the new name, the long tradition of the airline, characterized by reliability, high-quality standards, and an unusual team spirit among the employees, continues. After the ex-WDL has overcome the Corona-year 2020 with all its challenges, it is flexibly positioned for the future with its new name German Airways and modern brand identity," 


the German ACMI/charter specialist said.


German Airways has begun its operations in 2019 as an umbrella brand for WDL Aviation and its sister carrier LGW - Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter. The two airlines, both owned by logistics firm Zeitfracht, retained their separate AOCs and corporate identities and had separate business models. 


However, LGW filed for voluntary self-administration in the Düsseldorf District Court on April 22, having previously lost its long-term contract with its only customer Eurowings due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, WDL Aviation remained the only active airline in the group.


The company currently operates four Embraer ERJ 190-100LRs for the charter operations. WDL Aviation has a long-term wet-lease contract with Air France. It operates an Embraer E190 between Strasbourg and Amsterdam Schiphol.
