On January 9th, 2023, Bavarian Airlines announced its launch plans to the public through a press release. The airline plans to begin operations before the end of the year, with its base located in Munich. Currently, the company is in the process of obtaining its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) required to operate as an airline.
Bavarian Airlines has ambitious plans and intends to lease a fleet of up to 12 Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. It will initially offer flights between Munich and three destinations, Berlin, Düsseldorf, and Frankfurt, with plans to expand its route network in the future to include Amsterdam, Geneva, London, and Vienna.
To differentiate itself from competitors like Lufthansa, Bavarian Airlines plans to offer a “real business class” on its aircraft, which will be configured with 129 seats. This will allow it to attract business customers.
