Meanwhile, in France,
https://www.tourmag.com/Un-champion-...et_a94431.html
Dans le cadre de ce partenariat avec l'ancien joueur du PSG, la compagnie soutiendra les actions de la "Youri Djorkaeff Foundation". Cette association à but non-lucratif aide les enfants issus de milieux difficiles.
Wijet s'engage à reverser un pourcentage à la fondation sur chaque vol effectué à partir de janvier 2019

(A percentage of each flight will be donated to the "Youri Djorkaeff Foundation")
As they don't fly anymore, it won't cost them much...

Wijet France files pre bankruptcy

Another bad act by Wijet to its investors. The founder claimed he was restructuring and then quietly filed bankruptcy protection in France. Well done SGH Capital. 25m euro of investor capital lost

Interesting article on privatejetcardcomparisons.com (can't post links yet)

Just a broker now, that isn't taking bookings

".......the remainder of the French’ subsidiaries debts (which are minimal compared to the UK’s)." Of course they're minimal in comparison. All of the airlines costs were buried in the UK while the UK's ability to generate revenue was removed long before the demise.

"UK restructuring has been completed efficiently." That's one way of putting it I guess. Another way would be that it finally ceased trading while insolvent and leaving behind a mountain of debt.

"Nothing to hide. Still, some media have understood what is going on and are waiting for our announcements. We should rather talk about our future plans instead which we plan to announce with selected media in the coming weeks." Did Trump write this???

Here is the link

So we are expecting announcements.
What could hype more than the purchase of 16 Honda jets?
(Anouncemement dated 31st of May, just one month before going into receivership!)
Maybe they will be the first broker to take reservations for the moon?

Reported it to Linkedin as misinformation! The man is delusional. Also his article is littered with typos. Who invests with someone who doesn't proof read?

Who I am sad for is Arnaud ( quoted in the linked "article") . None of them understands English, and for one of them does not speak above level 4. It seems again that this idea was drawn in a pub on a Friday around midnight.
If Hersent did not realise what he was commissioned for at Blink he is an idiot, If he knew, nobody shall give him any credits, because he is a darn good liar..

Have a look in the comment section, one of the named "founders" has complained:


"Patrick. Why have you used my name in this document. I have never met you and you have not made contact with me How dare you use my name and reputation to raise money. If anyone is reading this do not trust this person. I am contacting LinkedIn . Please delete your post today or further action will be taken "

Well that's bizzare! A company that doesn't exist with no finance, no people and no aircraft, recruiting pilots for 16 invisable Hondajets

Their French website still invites to book a flight.
wijet.fr
And still shows a link to their Air Operator Certificate, which I thought was void.

Lawsuits filed by shareholders are withdrawn because of commissions paid out to their representatives. Wijet founder and owner of SGH threatened lawsuit over bonds issued by Middle Eastern Bank.
