Germany is a major industrialized nation in central Europe, a federal union of 16 states. Germany has a long, complex history and rich culture, but it did not become a unified nation until 1871. Before that time, Germany had been a confederacy (1815-1867) and, before 1806, a federal empire comprising many separate and quite different principalities. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification between the old East & West in 1990

After Janssen's death the airline was renamed into Ostfriesische Lufttaxi. In 1972 the airlines was renamed again, into OLT (Ostfriesische Lufttransport).

Took over Roland Air in 1990. 1996 all OFD activities were integrated into OLT. In Aug2011, OLT was bought by Polish building society Amber Gold, which also bought Polish regional carrier Jet Air and the Polish charter airline Yes Airways. These two Polish companies were combined under the brand OLT Express while OLT became OLT Express Germany. The island flights were taken over by a new independent company, OFD Ostfriesischer-Flug-Dienst. OLT Express Germany completed the purchase of Contact Air in Sep2012.
