The history of Germania Technik Brandenburg GmbH

The roots of Germania Airlines und therefore Germania Technik reach back to the year 1979 when the airline S.A.T (Special Air Transport) was taken over and operated by Dr. Heinrich Bischoff with Caravelles out of LTU stocks.

When Germania Airlines GmbH was foundet in 1986 the S.A.T remained existing as a holding and aircraft leasing corporation.

At this time first Boeing 737-300 enriched the fleet and  where supplemented by brand new 737-700 in 1998. Germania Airlines became the first european operator of Boeings 737NG.

Due to this pioneering role it was possible for the, at this time, still in the airline integrated Germania Technik to build up an essential degree of knowledge which is a benefit for all customers today in relation to 737NG maintenance specialities.

In the year 2003 19 Fokker 100 aircraft  where overhauled. Operated under the brandname Germania Express ("gexx") 14 of these aircraft flew to european economical and holiday destinations. 

In April 2011 the founding of Germania Technik Brandenburg GmbH took place wich from now on economizes as an independend company.

Exactly one year later, in may 2012, the new maintenance hangar on the west part of the new airport BER was completed and inaugurated wich since then functions as a headquarter for GTB.
