With its sale of Maersk Air last month, Maersk only operate airline business with cargo operator Star Air. Now through the acquisition of P&O, Maersk also take over 50% ownership of Martinair (as discussed earlier). On one hand the cargo operations of Star Air and Martinair could go hand in hand. On the other Maersk, with its sale of Maersk Air, does not seem interested in passenger operations and therefore might sell off Martinair in full (to KLM/Air France?) or perhaps sell the "passenger part" and keep the cargo operations. What's your thoughts on this - anyone with 'inside' Martinair/Maersk/P&O knowledge?
