BRUXELLES. Part Sociale. green. #19150. No 4396. Formed 1946 as Société Belge des Transports Aériens. In 1947 started services between Belgium and the Congo, using 6 renovated ex-RAF DC3 aircraft. From 1948 onwards there was strong cooperation with Sabena, who carried out maintenance of the Sobelair fleet. In 1960 the independence of the Congo led to a difficult time, while the company looked for a new role. It took over some routes no longer profitable for Sabena, and operated them with cheaper costs. From around 1970 Sobelair moved into the inclusive tour market, with Boeing 707 aircraft. Later became the largest Belgian charter company. Declared bankrupt in 2004.
