    <p>An airline formed from the ashes of Debonair plans to take on Lufthansa on key domestic routes in Germany, using D&uuml;sseldorf Express Airport as a hub. </p> <p>European Air Express (EAE) was founded by Peter Hauptvogel, who was managing director, Germany, for Debonair before the demise of the low-fares carrier last year. The new airline will concentrate on some of Debonair's more lucrative routes. Unlike Debonair, EAE is focusing on business passengers. </p> <p>The airline is serving London Luton and Munich from D&uuml;sseldorf and plans to introduce a four-times-a-day service to Hamburg from the airport, near M&ouml;nchengladbach. Hauptvogel admits this is a direct challenge to Lufthansa, which serves Hamburg from nearby D&uuml;sseldorf International and Cologne/Bonn airports. </p> <p>Although most of these destinations will be in Germany, with Berlin under consideration, executive vice-president Europe Barry Zorn says France could be a possibility now Air France is increasinhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Former-Debonair-executives-regroup-for-German-start-up-65171/

It backs predictions that low-cost traffic will triple in the next four years. <p>Floris van Pallandt, KLM uk's chief executive, dismisses suggestions that the London Stansted-based carrier has been forced into this move by the success of rivals easyJet, Ryanair and Go. "This is not a defensive measure, more of an opportunity," van Pallandt says, pointing to figures from market research firm Mintel, which predicts UK low-fare passenger numbers will increase from 5.4 million in 1998 to 15 million in 2003. </p> <p>With the launch of buzz, KLM uk will essentially be left as a feeder for KLM's Schiphol hub, serving 12 UK airports with 17 Fokker 100s and nine Fokker 50s. </p> <p>Buzz's main competitors have a head start, although the newcomer has generally selected routes where it is not competing head to head with low-fare rivals. </p> <p>A number of industry observers have questiohttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/KLM-uk-sets-off-for-low-cost-growth-61318/
