Small Planet Airlines GmbH is a German charter airline headquartered in Berlin and a subsidiary of Small Planet Airlines from Lithuania.[1]

History[edit]

The airline was founded in 2015 and operated its first charter services out of Düsseldorf Airport using its parent's licence by October 2015.[1] Along with its owner, Small Planet Airlines from Lithuania, which owns 80% of the German airline, and sister airline Small Planet Airlines (Poland), it belongs to the Small Planet Group. The headquarters in Berlin is expected to have up to 15 employees while each aircraft will be operated by 5 crews of 6; together that gives an expected overall employee count of around 75.[2]

The airline received its own German operations license on 13 May 2016 and operated its first flight (Bremen to Heraklion) on the same day.[1]

In January 2018, Small Planet Airlines Germany welcomed its one-millionth passenger.[3]

On 18th September 2018 Small Planet Airlines Germany filed for bankruptcy.[4][5]
