Scottish European (WW/SEU) was set up in July 1988 acquiring the two aircraft and licences of the defunct Chieftain Airways. Ad hoc charter operations started on October 5th 1988. Scheduled services between Glasgow, Brussels and Frankfurt were launched in November 1988. Edinburgh-Brussels was opened in May 1989, followed by Edinburgh-Frankfurt in July and Newcastle-Frankfurt in September 1989. The 748s were operated in a generous 40-seat configuration, with a high level of cabin service. The company after one large injection of cash and adding a third aircraft finally ran out of steam in April 1990.
