Lufthansa cancels its contract with Augsburg Airways, will launch Munich-Vancouver flights on May 16

Lufthansa (Frankfurt) has cancelled the regional feeder contract with the Augsburg Airways (Munich) effective on October 26, 2013.

The five Embraer ERJ 190-200s (ERJ 195s) assigned to Augsburg will be transferred to CityLine also on October 26, 2013.

The company was established in 1980 as Interot Airways. Revenue operations commenced in 1986. In 1996 the airline became Augsburg Airways. In 2003 Augsburg started operating as an Lufthansa Regional carrier. It was the last independent feeder operating for LH.

In other news, Lufthansa is expanding its long-haul services from its Munich hub and next year, for the first time, will offer a nonstop flight from Munich to Vancouver. From May 16, 2013, the new route to the largest city in British Columbia will be served daily with an Airbus A330. The service will complement Lufthansa’s daily flights from Frankfurt.
