Cimber Sterling A/S, still known as Cimber Air and styled as Cimber Sterling, is a Danish airline based in Sønderborg, Sønderborg Municipality, Denmark, operating scheduled domestic and international services in co-operation with Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and Lufthansa. Its main bases are Copenhagen Airport and Billund Airport, with a smaller base at Aalborg Airport.
The airline was established on 1 August 1950 and started operations in 1950. It was founded by the late Captain Ingolf Nielsen. It was one of the very few operators of the VFW-Fokker 614 regional jet. It also operated the Nord 262 and the Grumman Gulfstream 1 on its scheduled services. Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) purchased 26% of Cimber Air in May 1998 and expanded its codeshare agreement. In March 2003, SAS sold the stake back to Cimber Air Holding.
On 3 December 2008 Cimber Air bought parts of Sterling Airlines, which had filed for bankruptcy on 29 October 2008. The new airline which was named Cimber-Sterling, was created on 7 January 2009. Cimber bought the AOC (Air Operators Certificate), slots, brand and website (www.sterling.com and other domains). Aircraft leases were negotiatied with the owners. Employees of the former Sterling Airlines was not part of the takeover, but were welcome to seek employment in the new airline.
Cimber Sterling was wholly owned by Cimber Air Holding (Nielsen family) and had 368 employees (at March 2007). Cimber Sterling became listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange in 2009. Due to continuing financial difficulties, Cimber Sterling has presently entered into a subscription agreement with Mansvell Enterprises Ltd, which if successful will give Ukrainian billionaire Ihor Kolomoyskyi a stake of about 70%.
Cimber Sterling was the main sponsor of the Danish handball team in 2009 and 2010.
