Lufthansa is very satified with it's Italian Daughter Air Dolomiti!
Air Dolomiti feeds the MUC hub every morning,noon and evening out of 16 region al airports in Italy.The current fleet of mostly ATR 42 and ATR 72 has been enhanced by additional Avro's- and strategy within LH sees the potential for Air Dolomity grow to up to 25 jet-aircraft in the 100 seater range.
The MUC model could also be replicated for ZUR and FRA....

there´s a nice report on this fascinating airline in this month´s aero international (german). they seem to have been very successful with the LH cooperation. the ATR fleet seems to be well suited to them, the BAe jets being an addition for larger demand routes.

They are still chiefly syphoning off traffic from Italy to the Star hubs in MUC and FRA, aren't they? Am I correct that they do not offer any meaningful domestic Italian flights any longer?

Yes, that´s what the Aero article said, too. It also said that their on board product is better than other LH regional carriers. They supposably combine LH´s efficiency with an italian feeling.

They are comparible to what happened to Air UK... At first a domestic UK airline, but since the mid 90s slowly stopping stand alone flights within the UK and just feeding the AMS KLM hub, and since gobbled up by KLM Cityhopper.
You might see it becoming part of Lufthansa Regional someday.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Munich, Italy's northern most airport.

Good to hear how well Air Dolomiti is doing. Quite a good operation offering great intercontinental connectivity from many smaller Italian cities via the LH hub.

Perhaps 90-seat CRJ900s are on the horizon, as Air One fly them in Italy already and LH Cityline fly them too... aircraft commonality, spares and pilot pool etc...?

Or even better, the CRJ900X...  Wink

Air Dolomiti have a great service-reputation and the inflight -catering has received several awards.
Amazingly enough,Air Dolomiti have crews on each of the 16 Italian locations based,enabling the aicraft to fly into MUC in a morning-hub wave.
I also see them expanding into neighbouring countries(France,Croatia..)
and go bejond just feeder services into MUC - a great ,small airline !!

they already are, they just don't apply the Lufthansa Regional brand to their planes as this would hurt their distinct image.

i highly doubt so. in the past, they did serve quite a number of European routes from a number of Northern Italian gateways. BCN, AMS, CDG and some others come to my mind.

apart from services to MUC and FRA, i think they also serve VIE. judging from their development and recent press articles, they are only focussing only on feeding its partners' hub flights. in fact, they turned around their business model quite a bit. the only other European destination i seem them serving in the not too distant future is ZRH.



If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
