Does anybody know the difference between Premiair and Airtours International? They have the same color sheme and the same type of a/c. The only difference I see at the moment is the name...  Insane

I believe airtours owns them.
Primiair is based in Denmark and flies around from there.
I believe thats correct.

Premiair was earlier an independent airline which had a white c/s with a blue and an orange ball on the tail, it was as now based at Copenhagen.
For some years ago Airtours bought them and that's why all Premiair aircrafts fly with the Airtours c/s except titles.

They don't have the same type of aircrafts in the fleet because when Airtours bought Premiair, they already had aircraft such as the A300 and DC10 which they continued to operate.
When the DC10 was retired from the Premiair fleet Airtours continued to fly them, and Premiair got their three new A330-300 instead. Two of the A330-200 of Airtours are operated together between the airlines, Premiair usually operate two during the winterperiod.

Airtours has also these types which hasn't yet been operated by Premiair; B757, B767 and A321.
Premiair will get A321 later though when they retire their A300s.
And Premiair has these types which Airtours doesn't have; A300 and A330-300.

Hope this helps.

This really helps a lot!
What about operations? Do they operate the same routes, or does one operates charters and the other one regular flights for instance? Or do they just mix a bit...
Thanks for your answers

Premiair was founded in 1994 when Scanair and Conair merged. Premiair is the largest charter carrier in Scandinavia and it operates charter flights from Scandinavia to a large number of destinations.

Airtours International flys from airports in the United Kingdom.
Premiair flys from airports in Denmark.

Airtours DOES operate the A332 aswell as Premiair.

QNH1013, it's all charter.
Those labeled Premiair are based in Copenhagen and they mostly fly from Scandinavia to more sunny places.
Those labeled Airtours do the same, mainly from Britain.

Some day the name Premiair may disappear. But the travel agencies behind Premiair try their best to assume a "Scandinavian identity" even if they are totally British owned by Airtours.
Their competitors are mostly Danish, and it would be a promotional disadvantage to tell the world that "we are the foreigners".
