Famous Last Words
Ralf Auslaender

  leisure Cargo said this week that is “not negatively impacted,” even though parent Air Berlin filed for bankruptcy this past Tuesday.
  “All flights operated by Air Berlin and NIKI will continue as planned and our flight and cargo schedules remain valid,” leisure Cargo said.
  Looking ahead, Air Berlin could be broken up leaving the fate of leisure Cargo hanging in the balance.
  Today the company serves 14 carriers with 400 flights a week.
  Ralf Auslaender (pictured above), a visionary, founded leisure Cargo. While working as cargo director at LTU Airlines, he advanced the completely original idea of buying up the bellies of several tourist-based airlines in Europe for air cargo.
  Later unable to raise enough money to buy his baby outright from Air Berlin, Ralf, one of the nicest people we have met, gently retired.
