Fairline

Operated from Nov 1966 to c. Jun 1968

Country of Origin – Sweden

Founder/Director – Unknown

The little that is known about the history of this rather short lived airline reveals that it was initially set up in Gothenburg and backed by a number of shipping concerns who wanted a cargo airline available to them so that they could quickly transport goods around Scandinavia and sometimes even further afield. In fact, Fairline’s C-46s would occasionally find themselves venturing into SEN, turning up on the Swedish Flyer route when Transair’s or TSA’s aircraft were busy and possibly even bringing its own freight loads in. It seems that this airline only lasted until the summer of 1968 at the very latest although the reason for its demise are unknown.
