And although the scheme did rise passenger numbers, it failed to improve Maersk Air's financial performance in the domestic market.
The Faroe route was the airline's most lucrative, with profits 29 million in The Cabinet of the Faroe Islands wanted a share of this and in they, in cooperation with Cimber Air, established Atlantic Airways.
Maersk protested and stated that as a Danair partner, Cimber could not operate a competing route. But with Cimber only purchasing 25 percent of the new airline, the clause did not come into effect. Atlantic Airways captured roughly half the market on the route. A large portion of this was new ridership, so Maersk's annual patronage on the route only fell from , to 80, However, the competition made it impossible for either airline to make a profit on the route. Maersk took delivery of its first Boeing in Inspired form the importance of crucial timing of purchase and sale of ships, Maersk Air made several advantages deals.
One of the involved selling s for a higher price than they had paid for them.
Maersk was an early customer of the Fokker 50 , taking delivery of the first unit in Maersk decided to look for possibilities to fly international routes. Maersk Air bought Air Business the following year, keeping it as a subsidiary. Soon the a change to the concession was granted allowing the flight to operate from Aalborg Airport instead of Thistedt, allowing for a greater catchment of passengers.
The subsidiary airline took the name Maersk Commuter in Changes in European Community rules in allowed any carrier to operate intra-European routes, granted that they connected two regional airports. Maersk laid its eyes on Billund Airport , which was centrally located in Jutland and was classified as a regional airport. It was already a popular base for charter flights. To exploit the new regulations, Maersk identified London Southend Airport , which was classified as a secondary airport. Maersk inaugurated the route on 29 November with two round trips. Due to the distance from the city Maersk could not market it as "London" unless they provided an onward connection.
This was done by bundling the tickets with a first-class ride onwards by train, staffed with Maersk cabin crew. The route carried about 12, passengers annually and failed to make a profit. Billund on the other hand offered free landing fees the first year. It was flown with the Fokker During the late s Maersk Air started an expansion of its travel agencies.
A common agency was established in Esbjerg and negotiations regarding a fusion were initiated. But both parent companies wanted to be the "locomotive" in the new company, and the deal fell through. As the European Union was working on deregulation of the airline industry, Maersk Air considered it necessary to continue to modernize its fleet to remain compete in the event it would at a later date have to compete with SAS. It needed a smaller aircraft than the to replace it aging s and thereby asked Boeing to deliver a shortened version.
With this request coming from Maersk and other customers, Boeing launched the Maersk took delivery of its first on 6 April From Maersk was free to compete on any intra-European international route. In addition it flew from Copenhagen to London. All the new services were flown using the The shift from Southend to Gatwick allowed patronage to rise to ,00 per year and the airline to make a profit on the London route.
Airline traffic fell in after the break-out of the Gulf War and Maersk Air failed to reach its targets for the international services. However, the tides turned and the airline was again making profits in Maersk established a cargo division, Maersk Air Cargo, in Due to regulations, it only acted as a ground handling agent for overseas airlines, the largest being Cathay Pacific. When the cargo market was deregulate din , Star Air was established as a separate cargo company directly under the Maersk Group.
Incorporated on 1 September , it bought an existing hangar on the south sector of Copenhagen Airport.
Three Fokker Fs were leased and converted to combi-freighters. These could be converted from freighter to passenger configuration in half an hour. Star Air originally had a mix of operations. Star Air missed this contract narrowly to Sterling, an existing operator. However, in Sterling fell into financial distress and was not able to meet its contractual obligations.

UPS turned to Maersk, signing a deal on 22 October UPS Airlines transferred two of its s to Maersk and within ten days operations had commenced. With the deregulation approaching, Maersk looked at other markets in which it could operate. Maersk determined that the British market was lucrative. This would allow Maersk to establish itself with additional international routes. The two companies were merged in and renamed Brymon European Airways. Maersk and British Airways therefore decided to split up the company.
The company was demerged in , with British Airways taking over the former Brymon operations and Maersk taking over the former Birmingham operations. The latter was renamed Maersk Air UK.
Maersk signed a franchise agreement in which Maersk Air UK would fly with British Airways livery and flight codes, but at their own expense and their own aircraft and crew. Domestic services were flown with turboprops to Glasgow , Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Belfast. The s were delivered from The airline carried out a major overhaul of its fleet in The four One-Elevens were sold and replaced with newer Boeing s.
Maersk Air UK saw its ridership increase with 22 percent in , ending at , passengers. Despite issuing a lower bid, Maersk won, claiming a percent stake along with a percent state issued to Baltic Cresco Investment Group. Maersk Air commenced services from Billund to Frankfurt in ,  and a year later it started flights from Copenhagen to Kristiansand. The airline sold its Fokker 50s and leased them back. Meanwhile, it procured six Boeing s, which were delivered in It also ordered twelve new Boeing s , which were delivered from March By the early s the cooperation between the three Danair airlines had dissipated.
This was extended to also cover Cimber's domestic services, but Maersk chose to not participate. The Danair partnership was therefore abolished and from then each of the airlines flew each their respective routes without cooperation. With the demise of Daniar, Maersk Air focused on improving its international connections. Its primary strategy was to establish routes from Billund to European destinations with codeshare agreements with major European airlines.
This would allow Maersk Air's customers access to continue onwards with these airlines. Gradually the services were upgraded from Fokker 50 to s.
The partnership model was abandoned and instead the airline became a limited company aktieselskab directly under the mother company. Star Air on its side became a subsidiary of Maersk Air. This proved a difficult process and Maersk pulled out of the new company in In Maersk merged the company with the ground handling company owned by the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration , creating Novia.
It operated ground handling services at the airports in Copenhagen, Stockholm-Arlanda and Gothenburg Landvetter. The latter was part of the "golden triangle"—consisting of the three highly profitable routes between the Scandinavian capitals. This was met by reduced prices by SAS on the route, to keep its goal of an eighty-percent market share.
Maersk also established a feeder service from Aalborg to Billund, to provide connecting flights to international destinations. On 3 March the first was delivered,  with Maersk Air being the European launch customer. With its eight daily round trips, Maersk Air only captured ten percent of the market on the Copenhagen—Stockholm route, losing money on it. Maersk therefore started negotiations with British Airways and KLM to see if they could become part of an airline alliance.
