History

Cirrus was founded in February 1995 as Cirrus Luftfahrtgesellschaft mbH and operated an executive charter business. In March 1998, Cirrus Airlines received its licence to operate scheduled services between Saarbrücken and Hamburg. In August 1999, Cirrus took over the route from Mannheim City Airport to Berlin Tempelhof from Cosmos Air.

An important step was taken in February 2000, upon the 5th anniversary of Cirrus Airlines, when it established a cooperative partnership with German owned Lufthansa and became a Team Lufthansa franchise member. In April that year, Cirrus received licences to operate regularly scheduled service between Mannheim City Airport and Hamburg and between Berlin and Sylt/Westerland. From 2001 onwards, Cirrus steadily expanded its business, with scheduled services opening between Saarbrücken and Berlin Tempelhof (March 2001), between Berlin Tempelhof and Heringsdorf Airport on the island of Usedom (May 2002), between Rostock and Munich (May 2002), between Leipzig/Halle and Zürich (January 2003), between Leipzig/Halle and Hamburg (January 2003), between Dresden and Hamburg (March 2003), between Frankfurt and Skopje, Macedonia (April 2003), between Leipzig/Halle and Cologne (May 2003), between Frankfurt and Ohrid (June 2003), between Mannheim City Airport and Dresden (March 2004), between Dresden and Zürich (April 2004), between Mannheim City Airport and Olbia (May 2004) and between Munich and London City (May 2004), between Mannheim City Airport and Munich (September 2008).

Cirrus Airlines is a company of Aviation Investment GmbH including Cirrus Maintenance, Cirrus Flight Training and nana tours. The group is operating 22 aircraft and has over 500 employees (at January 2010). The company introduced a modified corporate identity in January 2008.
