German regional LGW Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter, currently operating with Dornier 228-100/200 will start operating flights under the Air Berlin designator this winter and open new routes from SCN and HAJ to DUS. Flights are to be operated up to five times daily and will allow passengers to make connections to Air Berlin/LTU flight at DUS. Additionally, Air Berlin will also begin selling flights from LGW's DTM-homebase on existing LGW flights to STR and BER and from DUS to GWT. Booked via Air Berlin, one-way flights will be available for 99 EUR all incl.

The same has happened before. LTU took over RAS Airlines in the 1990s and used them to feed DUS from SCN, GWT and HAJ. Pretty quickly, the flights with SD360s were cut and the slots used for LTU's international flights with larger equipment , with RAS getting sold and moved elsewhere with its operation (MGL). They went bancrupt soon afterwards.
