Hapag-Lloyd Flug (between 2005 and 2007 also marketed as "Hapagfly") was an airline based in Hanover, Germany. It operated scheduled and charter passenger flights, mainly to holiday resorts in Europe. In January 2007 in a restructuring, it combined its operations with Hapag-Lloyd Express to become TUIfly [Flight International 3 April 2007] , for which it operates all flights, while Hapag-Lloyd Express markets them.

History

The original HAPAG company first became involved in the aviation industry in 1910 , sponsoring Zeppelin flights.

Hapag-Lloyd Flug was established in July 1972 when the Hapag-Lloyd shipping group bought a few Boeing 727s to fly its cruise passengers from Germany to the ports of call for the cruises. It began operations on 30 March 1973. Through the years, the airline added regular passenger flights to its schedule, as well as new airplanes, such as the Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A310 aircraft. Since 1997 it has been a subsidiary of TUI AG, which also includes the Hapag-Lloyd cargo container line and cruise line.

In November 2005 the airline changed its name to Hapagfly due to the new marketing strategy of the TUI Group. In January 2007 it was merged into the new cooperation TUIfly with Hapag-Lloyd Express.

Incidents and accidents

July 12, 2000: Hapag-Lloyd Flight 3378, an Airbus A310 flying from Khania to Hannover, was involved in a highly publicized incident, after suffering fuel starvation caused in part by the crew's decision to continue the flight despite faulty landing gear that had partially retracted. All 150 people aboard survived the crash landing in Vienna.

Destinations

Hapagfly operated services mainly to European holiday resorts. Most of them are now operated by TUIfly.

Fleet

Over the course of its life, Hapag-Lloyd Flug operated all of the following aircraft, primarily through aircraft leasing.
