Sobelair was founded as a charter airline in 1946, originally (only during the initial months) known as Société d'Etude et de Transports Aériens, abbreviated SETA, operating African routes with Douglas DC-3 .In 1949, 72% of the shares of Sobelair were acquired by Belgian flag carrier SABENA. When Republic of the Congo (Léopoldville) was founded as an independent state in the former Belgian Congo, Sobelair ceased its African service, and concentrated on offering chartered holiday flights to the Mediterranean instead, using small Cessna 310. Sobelair joined the jet age in 1971, when the first Caravelle was acquired second-hand from SABENA. Over the following years, the fleet was further modernized with Boeing 707 aircraft, which stayed until 1981. By then, Sobelair operated a fleet composed exclusively of smaller Boeing 737 airliners. Long haul flights were relaunched only in 1994, using a newly bought Boeing 767-300. After several alliances with other charter companies, Sobelair merged into the new SN Brussels Airlines, but went on bankruptcy in 2004.
