This morning, the Danish airline Cimber Sterling, which has been in operation since 1949, cancelled all flights and declared bankruptcy. Cimber Sterling A/S, also known as Cimber Air, was based in Sønderborg close to the German border and had bases at Copenhagen and Billund airports. It operated scheduled domestic and international services in cooperation with SAS and Lufthansa and had a fleet of 19 aircraft flying to 53 destinations. The company was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange in 2009.
The decision to declare bankruptcy came after the owners decided not to continue financially supporting the company.
