Danish no-frills airline Cimber Sterling has gone bankrupt and shut down its operations, stranding passengers scattered across picturesque, socially-responsible towns throughout Scandanavia. Passengers who purchased travel insurance with the airline will have their fares refunded, while those who did not are completely out of luck. If by “out of luck” I mean they will lose their airfare but will still live with the full social welfare safety net of the Danish government.
Travelers in Karup, Bornholm, Sønderborg and Billund are especially affected, as Cimber Sterling was the only airline flying to Copenhagen.
Cimber Air has been flying since 1950; it bought Sterling Airlines in 2008.
