Resumen en portugués This article aims to analyse the role played by airlift in the German driving of the Second World War. The purpose is to demonstrate how this component was a decisive factor for Germany at the time. Thus, the starting point is a theoretical study to verify the concept of Blitzkrieg inserted in the literature. Hence, the relevance of the airborne component, the combined Arms and the air logistics is analysed at the war planning levels. Next, the cases of the Demyansk Pocket and the Battle of Stalingrad are discussed as a way of assessing the possibilities and limits of air transport in the Eastern War. Finally, Blitzkrieg is approached in order to compare it with the operations and the military doctrine of the present time
