Adria Airways News
The Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and Adria Airways have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for 15 SSJ100 Superjet aircraft and for a MRO joint venture at Ljubljana Airport.
On October 31, 2017, the Swiss full service carrier SkyWork has announced, that it was granted the full admission to operate again. This permission was temporarily limited by the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation, due to the airline’s lack of a secure funding basis, which is a requirement to maintain an AOC.
After several insolvencies in Germany and the insolvency of the Austrian Intersky in 2015, the Swiss regional airlines were largely spared. But this could also change in the future. Skywork Airlines and the Lugano based Darwin (since June 20, 2017 Adria Airways Switzerland) seem to face financial problems.
Etihad Airways has sold its 33,33% minority stake in Swiss regional carrier Darwin Airline. Darwin Airline operates domestic and international services using the brand name Etihad Regional since January 2014.
