Arcus-Air GmbH & Co. KG[1] is an airline based in Troisdorf, Germany, operating chartered cargo and corporate flights out of Mannheim City Airport.[2]

History[edit]

The airline was established in 1973.[2] It offered scheduled passenger flights from Mannheim to Oberpfaffenhofen in the 1980s and to Leipzig and Dresden in the early 1990s, following the German Reunification. In 1997, Arcus-Air Logistic set up a subsidiary named Cosmos Air, which operated scheduled flights from Mannheim to Berlin and London, using the respective city-centre airports London City Airport and now-closed Tempelhof Airport, using Dornier Do 328 aircraft.[citation needed] In 1999, Cosmos Air was sold to Cirrus Airlines, bringing an end to scheduled flights operated by Arcus-Air Logistic.[citation needed]
