Germania Flug has rebranded to chair. All flights remain the same.
Germania Flug was a Swiss leisure airline headquartered in Greater Zurich, based at Zurich Airport. The airline was founded in August 2014 in cooperation with the German airline Germania, and sported the same design. Their aim was to operate leisure charter flights under the brand, HolidayJet. Following Germania Flug's launch of operations on 26 March 2015, for the summer 2015 and winter 2015/2016, Germania Flug operated from Zürich to 17 leisure destinations in Europe and North Africa.
However, from November 2015, Germania Flug stopped its collaboration with HolidayJet and operated solely under its own brand name since. In summer 2016, Germania Flug operated scheduled flights around Europe, Turkey, Lebanon, and North Africa. In addition to this, Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, and Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, were served on behalf of the virtual airline Air Prishtina.

Economy Class is the airline's only cabin class and offers a warm and attentive service.
The airline offers free snacks and soft drink on all of its flights. On short-haul flights, each passenger is given a butterbretzel. On medium-haul and long-haul flights, passengers are given a free hot meal, with a soft drink and a tea or coffee.
Economy Class seats are set out in a 3 x 3 formation. Each seat gives around 30 inches of pitch and generous width.
Before it rebranded to Chair Airlines, Germania Flug operated flights to 18 destinations under its own brand name.

Now, Germania Flug is Chair Airlines. The rebranding marks the relaunch of the carrier under a new name.
The name Chair Airlines comes from the literal seat you sit on during flight. In addition, the quirkiness might play out well with millennials who are an increasingly difficult group to get flying with loyalty. Overall, it seems the renaming is a way for the airline to set itself apart and as something memorable.
