Elbe Air Lufttransport GmbH, usually just known as Elbe Air, was a corporate charter airline from Germany, which offered worldwide on-demand flight services. The company was headquartered in Büren, Westphalia and had its operational base at nearby Paderborn Lippstadt Airport.[1]

In 2002, Elbe Air operated a fleet of three Dassault Falcon 20 jets.[1] In the same year, reports surfaced about poor safety and security standards with the airline. A former pilot had filed a report to the German Federal Aviation Office, concerning poorly trained pilots and ageing aircraft, which had not been properly maintained.[1]
