Quantum Air (La Compania Quantum Air S.A.) (Madrid) on January 26 ceased all operations. The company originally started operations on July 4, 2000 with an initial fleet of three Boeing 717-200s under the AeBal (Aerolineas Baleares) brand. It was initially owned by Spanair (51 percent) and the GAS Group )(49 percent). However AeBal (Spanair Link) ceased operations on September 16, 2008 as part of the Spanair restructuring plan. SAS sold the company in January 2009 to Proturin, a Spanish investment company. In March 2009, AeBal was reorganized as Quantum Air.
