Alpar Bern

Switzerland

*

Alpar Bern Flugplatzgenossenschaft was formed in 1929 to operate routes out of the Swiss capital and also manage its airport, Flugplatz Bern-Belpmoos - the company's dual roles being reflected by the timetable below. When the airline wanted to widen its horizons towards the mid-1930s, it was reorganized as Alpar AG in 1936. Operations ceased in 1947 and the routes were taken over by Swissair.
