What About Sobelair?

Thu Nov 08, 2001 7:40 pm

I was wondering what happened to Sabena´s charter airline Sobelair?
Are they safe? Are they bankrupt too?
Anyone about that?

Sobelair is still flying. They are not facing banckrupt. That's all I can say for the moment.


Sabena ... Never to be forgotten (12 years already , what a shame !! )

I was told Sobelair is going to become part of "World of TUI". And that was even before SN collapsed.

As I understand it, TUI/Preussag turned down the option to buy Sobelair. As a member of the Sabena Group - which is now in liquidation - it counts as an asset but obviously will need to be disposed of very quickly otherwise it too will be closed. Unfortunately, with the troubles in the package holiday business, I can't see any viable purchaser on the horizon...
