The airline was founded on 24 May 1958 as Martin's Air Charter (MAC), by Martin Schröder and John Block, with one aircraft, a de Havilland Dove, and five employees.[2] In 1963 Mr. Schröder sold 49% of the company to four equal shipping company shareholders (12.25% each, these eventually combining as Nedlloyd). KLM
KLM
would later purchase the 50+% that Mr. Schröder owned, buying him out. The name was changed to Martinair
Martinair
Holland in 1966. A healthy boost came in 1967 with the opening of business to the United States. Martinair
Martinair
became all jet-powered in 1971.[3] In 1991, the first aircraft with the Martinair
Martinair
Cargo name was introduced, and Holland was dropped from all aircraft. In 1996, Martinair
Martinair
bought a 40% stake in Colombian cargo carrier TAMPA Cargo, based in Medellín, which it increased to 58% in 2003. The share in TAMPA was sold in February 2008 to Avianca, a Colombian company. Martinair
Martinair
president and CEO Martin Schröder, who received the Tony Jannus Award in 1995 for his contributions to commercial aviation, retired in 1998 from day-to-day activities. Also that year, the European Commission
European Commission
in Brussels refused KLM's offer to purchase Nedlloyd's shares, which would have made KLM
KLM
the sole owner. The first McDonnell Douglas MD-11
McDonnell Douglas MD-11
was delivered in December 1994. Throughout the next three years six other brand-new MD-11s were delivered to Martinair. In total four McDonnell Douglas MD-11CFs (convertible freighter) and two full freighters were delivered.[4][5] Martinair
Martinair
was the launch customer of the convertible freighter. In 2004 another MD-11F was added to the fleet, this one was previously owned by Swissair, and then converted to full freighter.[6] From 1995 to 2006 some of the convertible MD-11 were reconfigured to transport passengers in the high passenger peaks during the summer period. The passenger configuration was fitted with 390 seats.[7] After 2006 the demand lowered and Martinair
Martinair
did not need extra seats anymore. Development since the 2000s[edit] In 2006 Martinair
Martinair
purchased four Boeing 747-400s from Singapore Airlines. These passenger planes were converted to freighters to replace the older Boeing 747-200Fs. In June 2007, Martinair
Martinair
announced that it wanted one shareholder, preferably KLM, and in 2008 permission was obtained from the European commission. The transfer of remaining shares took place on 31 December 2008.[8] In November 2007, Martinair
Martinair
ceased its short haul operations to concentrate on its cargo activities and intercontinental flights. In 2009 three out of the four 747s were stored because of the economic crisis. In September 2010, a restructuring was announced which would involve dropping all passenger services from November 2011, which will be partly taken over by KLM, and leaving only cargo services.[9] In November 2010, the European Commission
European Commission
fined Martinair
Martinair
€29.5 million, following an investigation into price-fixing.[10] In the end of 2010 two of the 747-400s were leased to Air Cargo Germany.[11][12] The remaining 747 (PH-MPS) returned into service in May 2011 with an untitled colour scheme, because Martinair
Martinair
wasn't sure yet if the plane would remain operating for them.[13] In October 2011, Martinair
Martinair
ceased passenger service, which it had operated since its founding in 1958. Martinair
Martinair
had passenger service throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Africa
Africa
from Amsterdam. The last passenger flight took place on 31 October 2011, leaving it as a freight carrier only until today.[14] In March 2015, Air France-KLM
Air France-KLM
announced to shrink their dedicated cargo operations. Therefore, all of Martinair's McDonnell Douglas MD-11Fs were phased out by 2016 without replacement. Additionally, 330 jobs might be cut due to the downsizing.[15] Corporate affairs[edit] Offices[edit]

Incidents and accidents[edit]

On 4 December 1974, Martinair
Martinair
Flight 138, a Douglas DC-8, operating on behalf of Garuda Indonesia, flew into the side of a mountain while on landing approach in Colombo, Sri Lanka. All 191 passengers and crew on board were killed.[37] On 21 December 1992, Martinair
Martinair
Flight 495, a McDonnell Douglas DC-10, crashed during landing at Faro Airport, Portugal, killing 56 people (including two crew members) out of 340 on board.[38] The cause of the accident was microburst-induced wind shear in combination with crew errors which included the continuation of an un-stabilized approach and the relative passivity of the captain.
