Augsburg Airways (Munich) is due to lose its Lufthansa Regional flying contract on October 26, 2013 as we previously reported. According to this report by Augsburger Allgemeine, the chances the airline can survive the contract flying closure are becoming bleaker all of the time.

The company started scheduled airline service in September 1986 as Interot Airways. It became the current Augsburg Airways on November 6, 1995.
