HistoryEdit

It was a joint venture between Scandinavian Airlines System (51% ownership), Maersk Air (34%) and Cimber Air.[2] The three companies marketed all domestic flights from the cooperation started in 1971 until the liberalization of the airline market in the European Union in 1995.

SAS flew the routes from Copenhagen Airport to Aalborg, Aarhus and Karup, as well as the Greenland airports of Kangerlussuaq and Narsarsuaq. Maersk Air flew the routes to Billund, Rønne, Esbjerg, Vojens and Odense. Cimber Air flew the routes to Sønderborg.
