Slovenia’s Adria Airways has extended the suspension of almost all flights for a further two days, as it continues discussions with potential owners and creditors.
As reported earlier this week, the Star Alliance carrier initially suspended flights on Tuesday for a period of two days, but has now extended the grounding until at least Friday September 27.
In an updated statement the airline said:
“Adria Airways announces that it will continue with temporarily ceased majority of its flight operations also on Thursday, 26 September and Friday, 27 September.
“During these two additional days, the company will maintain a connection to its most important hub in Frankfurt. The Airline plans to operate on both days evening flights on route Ljubljana – Frankfurt – Ljubljana.
“Adria Airways is still leading active discussions with potential new owners and major creditors and remains dedicated in reaching positive solution for all.
“Adria Airways still advises its passengers to check who their carrier is before they arrive at the airport and if it is Adria Airways then they should contact sales offices where tickets were purchased.
“The company deeply regrets that it will continue with disruptions in next two days and apologizes to all its passengers and partners.”
Germany’s Airportzentrale reports that Adria Airways has a fleet of 20 aircraft and employs around 500 people. It is estimated to have a debt of €60 million.
