Citywing in Liquidation.

"10 March 2017
Citywing statement
As a result of Van Air losing their route licenses on Friday 24th February 2017, the company has found it difficult to source suitable viable aircraft to fulfil our contracts. The company has tried to offer a service whilst suffering considerable losses but these have proved unfortunately to be commercially unsustainable.
It is therefore with much sadness and deep regret that the Directors of Citywing Aviation Services Limited have had to take the difficult decision to close the company today and put the company into liquidation. This decision has not been taken lightly and has been made to protect creditors.
Flights on 11th March 2017 onwards have all been cancelled
We request that you do not turn up at the airports for your flights as there will be no one to assist.
A liquidator will be appointed and they will advise in due course on how to get a refund on your tickets.
There will also be guidance on the UK CAA website from Monday 13th March 2017.
For those passengers on the Cardiff to Anglesey service, we have been advised that your Citywing tickets will be valid on train services out of Cardiff, and from stations between Bangor and Holyhead.
On behalf of all at Citywing, we all apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you all for your support over the last 4 years.
The Directors
Citywing Aviation Services Limited"

I am glad this bunch have bit the dust. There was something unpleasant in the arrangement between the ticket seller and the real airline, the one that the passengers actually flew on. Citywing's rapid "This is nothing to do with us" attitude after the Cork crash was despicable. We are all better off without them. Hopefully Manx3 will not arise from the ashes.

Totally agree, everyone is safer now, hopefully the routes will be fulfilled by another operator
