Cimber A/S is a Danish owned airline whose primary area of focus is contracted flights with regional propeller- and jet aircrafts for other airlines. This focus guarantees Cimber’s customers, which primarily are other airlines, a subcontractor that in no way competes with the customer and one that has the ability to dedicate itself to the customer’s service concept and product.
The company was established on the 15th of May, 2012—following Cimber Sterling’s bankruptcy on the 3rd of May, 2012—through a business transfer of the CRJ activity which Cimber Sterling had been flying for SAS since 2004. 114 employees followed the business transfer, together with four CRJ 200 aeroplanes that took up flights on the 17th of May, 2012. Due to the business transfer, Cimber A/S has highly experienced and competent leaders and employees at its disposal, despite being a new airline. Cimber has been IOSA certified (Iata Operational Safety Audit) to ensure operational and safety related quality in the flight operation.
Since being established, the company’s activities have been extended with an additional ATR72 type aircraft in August 2012, and another in April 2013, so that the company today operates a total of six aircrafts on fixed contract flights for SAS.
As of September 2013, Cimber A/S employs approx. 150 employees and has its headquarters in Sønderborg, together with other activities in Copenhagen, Århus and Billund airports. The company’s maintenance facilities and hangar are situated in Copenhagen’s airport, where all the aircrafts operate to and from.
