I have seen that the Stapleton forum is very dead and I would like to bring some life to it :).
In this topic I am just going to post stuff and facts about CBE Airways.
The Third CBE is a brand of airlines by the Global Group of Indonesia. These airlines operate operations in 10 countries in six continents with plans to expand to over 12 countries in the close future. All CBE Airways are operated as one making up the third part of the trinity of operating companies which Global Group operates around the world. With the other two being Indo (Indonesia) and American (USA). The airlines of the CBE Group are:
- CBE Argentina based in Buenos Aires, Argentina
- CBE Caribbean (previously Panamericana Caribbean) based in Bridgetown, Barbados
- CBE Dominican Republic based in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- CBE Georgia based in Tbilisi, Georgia
- CBE Guatemala based in Guatemala City, Guatemala
- CBE Lebanon based in Beirut, Lebanon
- CBE Pacifica based in Honiara, Solomon Islands
- CBE Pakistan (previously Panamericana Pakistan) based in Karachi, Pakistan
- CBE Ukaraine (previously Panamericana Ukraine) based in Kiev, Ukraine
- CBE Zambia based in Lusaka, Zambia
These CBE airlines where previously operated under the Panamericana brand but only CBE Carribeean was ever in the original Panamericana Group but was purchased by Global Group in May 2017. The only remaining Panamericana airline is Panamericana de Cosat Rica which is 32% owned by Global Group. Global Group is the successor of Panamericana still continuing the world renown Panamericana service. The decision to re brand from Panamericana to CBE came ultimately with the expansion into more continents than American where the Panamericana brand which is very linked to the American continent did not work. The Panamericana brand is also somewhat competing with the American brand on the American continent thereby ti was decided that it would terminated and replaced by the CBE branding which at the time was not in use. All CBE Airlines are interconnected within the CBE World Wide alliance which is an alliance allied with Unity Skies solely for CBE Airlines. Some CBE Airlines work very closely with other Global Group entities such as American, American Hiawatha Airlines and IndoSky. All CBE Airliens are very interconnected and are operated as one carrier although some regional adaptations are made to better suit the host nation. Crew can change between CBE Airliens with only one week training different from the one month of training to change between other Global Group entities such as from American to Indo.
The new CBE Airways was founded in November 2016 and is based in the UK with currently London Heathrow and London Gatwick as hubs, CBE Airways also has a subsidiary called The British Trans Atlantic Air Company which offer trans continental flights. Go to page two for more details.
Founded in October 2014 headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden.
So CBE Airways is a airline based in Sweden but our market is the entire Scandinavia. We are quite a new airline that has just existed for around 3 weeks. We have at this moment a fleet of 28 aircraft (12 Saab 2000, 11 Saab 340B Plus and 5 LET). Exactly at this moment we are working whit getting jets to fly to the entire europe, this meens sadly that the LETs will one after one be returned as I at this moment have no route were they totally fit. I am also curently working on naming our aircraft, the Saabs will have names of well known Scandinavian people and the LETs will have names of Scandinavian animals (moose, wolf, bear, elk, fox). I will be writing here every month or something just to give some life to this forum :).
