Singapore Airlines is pleased to announce that today it is entering into a joint business venture alongside Allianz Deutsche Financial Corporation to establish a new full service German Airline called German Midland International (GMI Airlines) within the coming months.

The Airline will be based in Dusseldorf with future plans to add more hubs across Germany.

A 25% stake will be taken in the joint venture whilst ADFC and its network subsidiaries will take majority ownership.
