New German airline Azur Air is preparing to start operations in June instead of April as previously announced, a company spokesperson confirmed to ATW. The Düsseldorf-based carrier plans to operate leisure flights.

According to its website, Azur Air is owned by Amsterdam-based Holding NW International BV.

"The exact date [to start operations] will be announced," the spokesperson said in an email. "Our first routes will be to Palma de Mallorca (Spain); destinations in Turkey, Greece and long-haul flights are also planned to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic)."

Azur Air will initially operate two leased 330-seat Boeing 767-300ERs. "By the end of this year, the fleet will grow to three aircraft. At the moment, Azur Air Germany has 130 employees [cabin and cockpit crews]," the spokesperson confirmed.

The company said it has entered into the German commercial register in April and is undergoing final preparations for licensing by the German Aviation Federal Office.
