Augsburg Airways GmbH was a regional airline based in Hallbergmoos, Germany. Until 26 October 2013, it was part of the Lufthansa Regional group and operated domestic and international services on behalf of Lufthansa out of Munich Airport. Augsburg Airways announced in March 2013 that it will cease operations as of 31 October 2013.
The airline was established in 1980 as Interot Airways, but started revenue operations only in 1986 with flights from Augsburg to Düsseldorf. In 1993 it started flying to European holiday destinations for tour operators and added international scheduled services to Florence in 1994. The co-operation with Lufthansa initiated in 1996 was accompanied by a change of name to Augsburg Airways.
From 1 June 2002, its operations were restructured and in 2003 it became part of Lufthansa Regional. Augsburg Airways was purchased by Cirrus Airlines and formed part of the Cirrus Group. In 2009 Cirrus Airlines and Augsburg Airways where bought by the investment company ATON AG. Eventually Cirrus Airlines was bought back by its founder, leaving ATON AG's aviation branch with Augsburg Airways and DCA (aka Daimler Chrysler Aviation).
In 2012, Lufthansa ended its cooperation with Contact Air, leaving Augsburg Airways as the only independent regional feeder within its regional network. In October 2012, Lufthansa announced that it will end its contract with Augsburg Airways as well in October 2013. As a result of the concluded contract with Lufthansa, Augsburg Airways announced in March 2013 that it will cease operations as of 31 October 2013.
