HistoryEdit

 
A now retired Avanti Air ATR 72-202

Avanti Air (named after the Italian word for ahead) started operations on 1 July 1994. It was founded by former pilots Markus Baumann (now Managing Director) and Stefan Kissinger (now Chief Executive) as an aircraft management company. It entered the charter market in 1996 with two Raytheon Beech 1900C aircraft.

As of 2007, the company was owned by Gerhard Mahler (33,33%), Markus Baumann (33,33%) and Stefan Kissinger (33,33%) and had 73 employees.[1]

In autumn 2014, Avanti Air introduced the Fokker 100 to its charter fleet alongside a new corporate design. In November 2015, the airline phased out their last ATR72 aircraft in favour of a second Fokker 100 and therefore becoming an all-jet operator.[2]

DestinationsEdit

As of February 2017 Avanti Air operates on a wet-lease contract on behalf of Hop![3] as well as ad-hoc charter services.
