Aero-Transport Flugbetriebsgesellschaft, was established in the early months of 1958 in partnership with the West German charter company LTU. At first, the company used Vickers Vikings and a single Dove aircraft to offer charter flights to popular holiday destinations in Europe. In June 1961, they acquired an ex TWA 049 Connie, which was added to their existing fleet of Vikings. This new acquisition was mostly used for IT and general passenger charter work, particularly for transport between Vienna and Mediterranean resorts. In the summer of that year, Falcon Airways attempted to dry-lease the aircraft, but faced several challenges in obtaining permission from British aviation authorities.
The company purchased a 749 Constellation aircraft in 1962 and another 749 Freighter in May of 1963. These planes were used for worldwide passenger and freight charters, and were the first aircraft to display the flag in New York and Tokyo in July 1961. Marian Kozubski, the former owner of Falcon Airways, served as the Constellation chief pilot until issues arose. One of the Connies was grounded in Djibouti in November 1963 after being used for gun-running. As a result, OE-IFA was seized in Vienna early in 1964. OE-IFE was impounded at Schiphol, pending the payment of fuel, landing and other service charges. The company ceased all operations during 1964.
