AOM French Airlines was the result of a merge between the French overseas département of Réunion island, Air Outre Mer (AOM) founded in 1988, and Minerve SA, another French airline based at Orly which operated since 1975. In February 1999, Swissair acquired a 49% stake in the airline as a part of its "hunter strategy". For most of the decade, the airline fiercely competed with Air France on both the French domestic market and on the air routes to the French overseas territories. Due to inappropriate fleet management and overcapacity, the airline quickly accumulated huge debts and consequently ceased operations in 2001 (possibly as a result of the bursting of the dot-com bubble and the early 2000s recession which followed)]. The airline's final bankruptcy was approved after several months of strikes. On 25 March 2001 AOM French Airlines merged with Air Liberté, the airline retaining the name "Air Liberté". On 22 September 2001 the airline was renamed Air Lib.
