Notes: The Deutsche Zeppelin Reederei (German Zeppelin Transport Company), typically was abbreviated DZR. During the mid 1930s, the DZR was a commercial airline based in Frankfurt that operated Zeppelins flying regular transatlantic flights, including the famous LZ 129 Hindenburg. Following the Hindenburg disaster in 1937 the DZR stopped transatlantic flights. However, it launched a new airship in 1938 and had another one order. Plans for more operations ended at the outbreak of World War 2 and the companies Zeppelins were scrapped in 1940.
