AirQuarius Aviation

Hi,

Anyone know about the current status of this organisation?
I hear rumors that don't sound too good.

Clarification would be appreciated.

Cheers...

Not hearing good things about their future.

Sad. The industry is in bad shape.

Thanks for your replies.

It this is all true then it's a very sad day for AQ and the wonderful people that made the place what it was!

God bless you all and here's hoping that GB can start again.

Whats with PPRuNe? About every 4 to 6 months someone posts that AQ are in trouble and closing down. Strangely enough they always just seem to be there!

Perhaps the doors being closed was due to the rain this morning? If not it would be a great shame.

AirQuarius - Still flying or ceased?

Hearing news that AirQuarius has folded - any one that can confirm or deny this?

Thumbs down

I am glad that you somehow managed to find it funny that a company that has been around for over 20 years has closed its doors with the loss of many jobs!

Were they liquidated or is it provisional or what?

Not so sure what is going on there.
From what I hear there may still be a chance for them to survive (fingers crossed)
