Skyways Express applies for bankruptcy

Travellers with morning departures are left stranded

Together with its subsidiary City Airline AB, Skyways Express AB has today been forced to stop all payments and services. As a consequence, all flights are cancelled with immediate effect. Both companies will apply for bankruptcy today. Skyway’s owners “decided not to fund the company any longer”, the company explained. Travellers with morning departures from Karlstad, Gothenburg and other cities have been left stranded.
Mikael Wångdahl, CEO of Skyways and City Airline: “It feels very sad for the company and for our passengers who will be immediately affected. It is also very sad for the personnel at risk of losing their jobs. We have come far in turning the company around, but after the bankruptcy of Cimber it became almost impossible to continue.”
The Swedish budget carrier served 20 destinations in Sweden and abroad, including routes to Bergen in Norway and Manchester in the UK.
