Sterling Airlines A/S was an Icelandic-owned low-fare airline, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was created in September 2005 through the merger of two Danish airlines - Sterling European Airlines A/S and Maersk Air A/S - which had been bought by Icelandic investment group Fons EignarhaldsfÃ©lag a few months before. One month after the merger, Sterling Airlines was sold to the FL Group. In December 2006, Sterling was sold again, this time to Nordic Travel Holding. On 6 January 2006, Hannes SmÃ¡rason, CEO of the FL Group, stated that a merger of EasyJet and Sterling was a possibility.
