The Germania company was founded in 1978 in Cologne, on the initiative of Hinrich Bischoff. It was originally called SAT (Special Air Transport). At its inception, the company specialized in charter flights. Originally founded in 1979 as a holiday airline, Germania has grown into a scheduled airline over time. In 1986, SAT changed its name to Germania. The following year was marked by the launch of regular flights with the Boeing 737-300. The company moved in 1992 from Cologne to Berlin-Tegel Airport. In 1998, it acquired its first Boeing 737-800. Building on its success, Germania achieved a record figure at the end of 2009, with 2.5 million passengers carried. The company further anchored its activity internationally in 2012. It opened a subsidiary, called Gambia Bird.
