LTU Name?

Thu Mar 23, 2006 9:20 pm


In the database I noticed that the info field for this airline shows 'LTU- Lufttransport Unternehmen'. I always thought LTU stands for 'Lufttransport Union'
- whats correct?

Unternehmen is the current one. It started out as Union, though.

LTU was founded in Frankfurt on the 20th of October 1955, bearing the name “Lufttransport-Union”.

2006: Intro Verwaltungs GmbH, registered offices in Nuremberg, is acquiring a 60% share in LTU Lufttransport-Unternehmen GmbH. Intro Verwaltungs GmbH has also owned shares in dba Luftfahrtgesellschaft mbH since 2003. LTU und dba will collaborate to form the first low-fare airline operating worldwide. The LTU and dba trademarks remain preserved.
