Established on 1 August 1950 by Captain Ingolf Nielsen, the airline started operations in 1950 and was one of the very few operators of the VFW-Fokker 614 regional jet. During the period 1951 - 1955 flight operations in West Germany start to pick up and by the end of this period, the fleet has grown to 17 aircraft.Â In 1971, Cimber Air concludes a business agreement with Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) and Maersk Air to establish the joint company Danair and to develop and strengthen domestic flight operations in Denmark. 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 and formed the new airline Cimber-Sterling in 2009. In the same year, Cimber Sterling became listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. 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%.
