The airline is based at Zürich Airport and offers regular and seasonal flights all throughout Europe and to parts of West Asia and North Africa. Including its hub, the airline flies to more than 20 destinations in over 10 different countries.

The airline rebranded once more in 2019. After Germania ceased operations due to financial difficulties, Germania Flug rebranded as Chair Airlines, which is the airline that it flies as today.
