JUNKERS F 13

The return of an
epoch-making aircraft

The new JUNKERS F 13 is a living piece of aviation history and a fusion of history and modern craftsmanship. Back in 1919, she was the first all-metal aircraft for passengers, mail and freight.

Today, she offers the unique opportunity to experience travelling as both pilots and passengers would have a century ago.

The history of aviation – translated to modern times.
