SETE Linhas Aéreas Ltda. (Serviços Especiais de Transportes Executivos) is a domestic airline based in Goiânia, Brazil founded in 1999. The company operated in several cities located in the brazilian states of Goiás, Tocantins, Mato Grosso, Pará and Amapá, and also in the Federal District (Brasília) but since January 1, 2016 it is grounded for restructuring.
SETE traces its origins to 1976, when Rolim Adolfo Amaro, also founder of TAM Airlines, created an airline specialized in general aviation and maintenance. The airline was sold to Luis Roberto Villela in 1980, who bought its first aircraft, a Mitsubishi.
In 1995 SETE built a hangar at Goiânia Airport and in 1998 it started to offer air-medical services. In 1999 SETE received authorization to operate charter flights and in 2006 it became a regular carrier. Its fleet then consisted of 3 Cessna 208B Grand Caravan. A fourth Cessna arrived in 2000 and a fifth in 2002.
In spite of being the main regional airline of both Central and North-Central regions of Brazil, all regular services were indefinitely suspended on January 1, 2016. During the suspension all services of the airline will be restructured including routes and aircraft. Air taxi services are not affected.
