Lions Air is a charter airline based in Zürich, Switzerland. It operates air charter and business services, using fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.[1]


The airline was established in 1986 by pilot, Jürg Fleischmann. It had about 30 employees in July 2007.[1] In June 2005 Lions Air planned to lease a McDonnell Douglas MD-80 to start charter flights from Zurich and Geneva to Pristina, Sarajevo and Skopje, but abandoned the plan later in the year.[2]
