Cimber Sterling grounded

Founded as far back as 1950, Cimber Sterling has finally been grounded and declared bankrupt after a series of financial problems, and a number of owners.  Several airlines have come in with offers for stranded passengers.  According to OAG, 27 routes were being operated.  From its base at Copenhagen Kastrup Airport the carrier serviced a number of regional airports and flew holiday charters to mainly Mediterranean resorts.

Cimber Sterling is registered in the Travel Guarantee Fund.  This means that clients may be able to obtain a ticket refund if bankrupt insurance was taken out at the time of booking.  Tickets paid for by credit cards may well be under the same rules.

As of the time of the bankruptcy Cimber Sterling operated 19 aircraft (9 ATRs, 6 Boeing 737-700s and 4 Bombardier CRJs on behalf of SAS.
