About Hahn Air

Hahn Air is a German scheduled and business charter airline founded in 1994. Since 1999 it has specialised in distribution services for other airlines and has established itself as the market leader in indirect ticket distribution. Today, Hahn Air covers 190 markets and cooperates with more than 300 air, rail and shuttle partners as well as over 100,000 travel agencies.

Although Hahn Air offers these distribution and ticketing services exclusively to transportation companies and travel agents, travellers benefit as well from being able to choose from more carriers, more routes and more destinations. Every year millions of passengers travel between 4,000 locations using Hahn Air’s HR-169 tickets. It is the first and only airline worldwide that offers free and comprehensive reimbursement in case of insolvency of the operating carrier. Hahn Air is a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and a globally connected stakeholder playing a leading role in the airline industry.

Hahn Air is 100% owned by the Hahn Air Group, an international corporation based in Dreieich near Frankfurt, Germany. The fleet of Hahn Air Lines operates out of the airports Dusseldorf and Frankfurt Egelsbach. The Group, which has offices around the world, including Minneapolis, Montevideo, Paris, Casablanca, New Delhi, Manila and Johannesburg, achieves an annual global turnover of approximately 1 billion USD for its clients.
