Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung

Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung

A Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung is a type of legal entity very common in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. It is an entity broadly equivalent to the private limited company in the United Kingdom and many Commonwealth countries, and the limited liability company (LLC) in the United States. The name of the GmbH form emphasizes the fact that the owners of the entity are not personally liable or credible for the company's debts. GmbHs are considered legal persons under German, Swiss, and Austrian law. Other variations include mbH, and gGmbH for non-profit companies.

Airline

Airline

An airline is a company that provides air transport services for traveling passengers and freight. Airlines use aircraft to supply these services and may form partnerships or alliances with other airlines for codeshare agreements, in which they both offer and operate the same flight. Generally, airline companies are recognized with an air operating certificate or license issued by a governmental aviation body. Airlines may be scheduled or charter operators.

Vienna is Austria's most populous city and its primate city, with about two million inhabitants, and its cultural, economic, and political center. It is the 6th-largest city proper by population in the European Union and the largest of all cities on the Danube river.

History

Founded as People's Viennaline in 2010, the first revenue flight of the company took place on 27 March 2011.[2] For several years, People's only operated a single scheduled route between its homebase and Vienna. However, the route network has since been expanded with some seasonal and charter services.

In November 2016, People's inaugurated the world's shortest international jet route (and, after St. Maarten-Anguilla, second shortest international route overall). The flight from St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport, Switzerland, to Friedrichshafen Airport, Germany, took only eight minutes of flight over Lake Constance and could have been booked individually. The airline faced severe criticism for this service from politicians and environmental organisations. This leg was part of its then new St.Gallen/Altenrhein-Friedrichshafen-Cologne/Bonn service.[4] However, this entire route has been terminated entirely by the mid of April 2017 due to low passenger numbers.[5] Shortly after, the airline announced plans to terminate its last remaining route from Friedrichshafen (to Vienna) as well.[6]

In May 2018, People's Viennaline announced a rebrand to the shortened People's in order to reflect their widened route network.[3]

In October 2019, the airline announced major restructuring measures mainly consisting of the phase-out of one of their two Embraer 170 aircraft and the closure of all charter operations outside of their St. Gallen-Althenrhein base.[7]
