HistoryEdit

 
Jet Time's previous logo

Jet Time was founded by a group of Danish investors and operated its first flight on 19 September 2006.

In November 2016, it was announced that Jet Time and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) would end their contract for Jet Time's operation of eight ATR 72-600s on behalf of SAS in early 2017, as SAS wanted to concentrate on larger aircraft.[6] Subsequently, Jet Time had phased out the relatively new ATR aircraft.

The airline announced that it had filed for bankruptcy on 21 July 2020,[4] though the airline expected to resume operations under a new company, legally incorporated as "Jettime A/S", following the pandemic.[7] Jet Time's assets were also to be transferred to Jettime, including Jet Time's CEO, a number of key employees, and five of Jet Time's Boeing 737 aircraft, for operations planned to resume by 2022.[8][9]
