FRANKFURT, Jan 26 (Reuters) - DaimlerChrysler has sold its DaimlerChrysler Aviation GmbH unit to a subsidiary of Germany's ATON Gmbh for a sum the world's fifth-biggest carmaker did not disclose, it said on Friday. The unit provides air transport to business travellers. It employs 200 people and had 2006 revenue of around 65 million euros ($83.90 million). The deal is part of DaimlerChrysler's drive to divest non-core activities and increase its return on net assets.
