Skyworks license has been renewed for an 'unlimited' amount of time. Does anyone know what that realistically meansd (aside from the glaringly obvious)

Hard to understand your question... "Realistically", they regained an unrestricted operational permit, nothing else. What else do you expect?

Appreciate it might be a bit ambiguous. I was under the assumption the licenses needed reneweing every so often, so to give them an unlimited license, it would appear this not to be the case.

I suspect i may be looking a bit daft at this stage, so i'll shut up...

Skywork had for the last few years an "unlimited" permit but got a "restricted" permit mid of October with the obligation to show the necessary funds until October 28th to get back to the status "unlimited"

Skywork was not able to show the funds and therefore the permit was "revoked" which is usually the end of an airline.

However they where able to show the necessary funds some days later and got an "unrestricted" permit again

Its quite interesting that Powdair inform me by email that I will be flying in the CRJ200 from LCY to SION to LCY, yet the aircraft type is not approved for LCY...lol

Powdair can fly to the moon and an approval for the CRJ 200 to fly LCY is a triviality for them....

It doesn't say that on my ticket, it says SB20..... there is nobody in powdair that I've spoken too that has ever spoken about the CRJ 200's doing anything other than the regionals and the SB 20 doing the LCY.... so weird you got an email from them stating that .. I'd go back and question that....

Either one is interesting: The CRJ 200, which is not able to fly LCY, or the S20 under the BOB-code, who should/will operate this aircraft.
If it is a S20 the list of possible operators is not very long. Darwin jumped out and I guess SkyWork will not do it any way(?). Who else?
Six or seven weeks to go and still many points are not clearly coommunicated by Powdair. I would not spend money to purchase a ticket as long as Powdair is not clearly saying whats all about and inform their possible customers and passengers reasonably.

wasnt EDI supposed to be included in this? Seems to have been dropped from their current planned timetable.
Do we expect this outfit to run a full operation?
I see Swiss now planning on getting in on the action ex LHR from Feb

Hmm what aircraft is operated by Swiss?
I wonder how much time would be needed to clear non Schengen immigration for a fully loaded 320...

Massive Portugese contingent here in the Valais and it will be a very good route, but they are not know to be big spenders so the price needs to be keen and the times / schedule right, it will be a good route for sure.. just seen its a charter for 2 rotations.... so I know whose behind it.... yep that will be good for Sion....

A bit more than four weeks to go, who will fly LCY? It's still on sale, a quick check showed return fares of EUR 480.00.

According travelnews.ch Powdair did not name the airline who should operate LCY during a "Launch-Event" yesterday in London. Not very promising... Only two weeks to go!
