LTU International History
Lufttransport-Union's founders started the company in 1955, some months after Germans regained the right to their own air space. The first fleet comprised a British Viking aircraft, which was later expanded to three aircraft. The first flight travelled to Sicily in March 1956.
The company's name was often confused with that of another company; therefore, the owners changed it to Lufttransport-Unternehmen in 1959.
Air Berlin bought the airline in 2007 and announced that LTU will no longer use the LTU trademark in 2008.
