Pity

Alitalia, Air Berlin, Darwin ... who is next? Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Jet Airways...?

Bonway, in the 67 years I've been on this earth airlines have come and gone with regular frequency. Always sad but it's a fickle business.

I have absolutely no doubt that the money people behind it will not be left short...
'Screw the employees' is what they'll say behind closed doors.
They always do.... But I stand to be corrected.

No, I think you have that exactly right.

Been there, lost the T shirt.

Oh dear. I do not have to relive the nightmares of their engineering policy again. Shame for the employees mind.

In the 35 years I've been in this business I've seen much the same. It is the first time however that I see all of them having a common investor.

Nothing to do with the fact as a Swiss (Non EU)regional operator they could not operate routes in other countries around them? I know another regional operator that will have the same problems in 2019 :(

Is Adria Swiss?

Switzerland has bilateral agreements with the EU on many topics including aviation. In most cases, and it certainly applies to aviation, the agreement essentially requires CH to put in place all of the rules applicable to EU member States.....in return for access to the EU market.

Etihad ditched Darwin and Adria picked up the pieces which they now cannot get to work. Adria Switzerland is probably a different AOC and legal entity than Adria in Slowenia.

Actually the exchange of rights with the EU gives Swiss/EU airlines 3rd/4th/5th freedom rights. Not 7th/8th (cabotage) or 9th (stand alone cabotage).

Fully agree, Darwin was a nice company 4 to5 years ago.
Sad for Staff/Teams.

Anyone know what's happening to the Saab 2000s, think there were six of those?

flyingwolf 12th Dec 2017 15:19

Rumors coming from inside Alitalia (formerly Darwin partner under common Etihad main shareholder) say that TODAY the Darwin definitely ceases operations declarong bankruptcy.
More to follow.....

Bankruptcy confirmed by Swiss press

The Italian-speaking Swiss press confirms the airmine officially went bankrupt....
Sad for their 250 employees.

Regarding the Saabs, it seems that the plan of the Adria Airways' management is to incorporate those Saabs into its fleet since Darwin was Adria's sister company. I'm not sure if this is feasible, since Darwin has gone bankrupt (and you probably cannot just move property of a bankrupt company at your will). They are parked at the Ljubljana airport and they are maintained regularly.

Yes, it officially went bankrupt. Some of the cabin crew has already been taken by Adria Airways.
