WDL Aviation welcomed as new BARIG member

WDL Aviation has joined the BARIG as its newest member.

WDL Aviation has joined the Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG) as its newest member. The association based at the airport in Frankfurt represents the interests of around 100 national and international airlines from the passenger, cargo and tourism sectors. The German BAR is thus the worldwide largest association of its kind.

WDL Aviation exists since 1974, has its head office at the airport Cologne/Bonn and operates a Europe-wide fleet of aircraft type British Aerospace Bae-146 for passenger and air cargo traffic. The aircraft is in wet lease operation for renowned European airlines such as Air France and Easyjet. Since October 2017, WDL Aviation is part of the Zeitfracht group based in Berlin. Zeitfracht and BARIG are currently in talks regarding an enhanced cooperation with the association and its member airlines in air cargo and logistics matters.

“We are happy to welcome aboard WDL Aviation as part of the Zeitfracht group,” states BARIG Secretary General Michael Hoppe. “Our association purposefully advocates the interests of our member airlines from the passenger, cargo and tourism sectors and thus promotes a sustainable strengthening and effective development of the air traffic location Germany. Among other aspects, this goal incorporates the abolition of the air traffic tax or security. BARIG takes a targeted approach to further major and future-oriented topics. For example, towards the German government regarding the prevention of terror and hazards which is an overall national task and should, therefore, be financed largely by the state in the future.”

Dr. Wolfram Simon, managing director of the Zeitfracht group explains, “Our strategic aim is to unify passenger air travel with cargo traffic and establish a European express network for lightweight packages. Our newly acquired BARIG membership underlines this plan and allows for an intensification of our cooperation with German and international airlines of BARIG. I am very much looking forward to the upcoming work in BARIG’s international environment.”
