HistoryEdit

DAT was founded as Danish Air Transport and started operations in 1989, initially as a cargo airline. Soon special operations like the transport of live horses or supplies for the Paris Dakar Rally in Africa were offered, too. Passenger charter flights were added in 1994, with the subsequent launch scheduled services on 18 November 1996.[citation needed] Since 2003, DAT also owns DAT LT which has a single ATR aircraft and operates under its own AOC. Prior to 2020, the airline changed its legal name and brand from Danish Air Transport to the abbreviated DAT.[3]
