In 1958, the airline was established with the goal of providing an air taxi service in the Emden region. The original name of the airline was Ostfriesische Lufttaxi. It was then rebranded to Ostfriesische Lufttaxi GmbH after local shipping companies invested. However, it wasn't the last time the airline was rebranded. The company changed its name to Ostfriesische Lufttransport GmbH and operated super-regional services under the DLT Luftverkehrsgesellschaft brand name, finally, in 2011 the airline became Ostfriesischer-Flug-Dienst GmbH (OFD), the name it still operates under. They have a fleet consisting of two types of aircraft. The GA 8 Airvan and the larger Britten Norman Islander are used by the airline. OFD operates services in North-West Germany as well as the North Sea, connecting small towns and isolated islands.
Because their flights are small and the aircraft aren't large enough to provide a premium seat, they only offer economy class travel. Inflight food and shopping services are not available due to the short flight times. All passengers will be given the same type of seat, which is a standard seat on these types of aircraft.
Inflight entertainment is not available, such as magazines or wifi. You won't need it because flight times are so short. However, you might want to bring something to keep your mind busy for the duration of your flight.
Because the airline is a regional airline, it doesn't have a hub airport. It only operates to 5 airports.
OFD offers only 5 destinations in the North Sea and North-West Germany. The airline connects mainly small islands off the coasts of Germany and the Netherlands with the German mainland.
The airline doesn't currently offer online check-in.
You must check in at the airport if you are flying with the airline. Although the airline doesn't specify when check-in will close, domestic services should be aware that check-in closes at 45 minutes before departure. Once you have received your tickets, you will be provided with information about check-in times and boarding times.
The airline uses small aircraft which are limited in space, so the allowance for baggage is limited. Your ticket includes baggage, but it is limited to 10 kg of luggage, which can be divided between hand and suitcases. Only 5kg is allowed for children. You can only take 5kg of luggage.
