FlyNonstop (Kristiansand) suddenly stopped flying yesterday (October 29) and declared bankruptcy. The short-lived airline only commenced operations on April 25, 2013.
The airline issued this statement:
We regret to announce that of today (October 29) we have sent a petition for bankruptcy of FlyNonstop AS. This means that all our flights as of Tuesday, 10/29/2013 at 06:00 have been cancelled.
All customers must now contact their credit card company / bank with ticket reference and payment receipt to get their ticket costs refunded.
We are now contacting our customers via email and SMS to provide advice and guidance on how to deal with rebooking / purchase of new tickets for their journey.
With the help of SAS we have been able to provide our customers (with a ticket reference from FlyNonstop) the opportunity to purchase new tickets at a special adjusted price from SAS, provided that there are available seats on the desired travel date and destination. SAS have many frequencies, large network and flies to all our destinations. The possibility that the majority of our customers will find a suitable ticket alternative to the original itinerary will be very good.
SAS will handle all requests and aim for a special price for all FlyNonstop customers. Please call:
Phone: +47 915 05 400,
or locally to Kjevik Airport in Kristiansand on
Phone: +47 957 19 478
The Company (SAS) is not responsible for the tickets already purchased from FlyNonstop, or any other obligations in the light of FlyNonstop’s cancellations.
We will once again lament the burden placed on you, the passengers, but unfortunately we at FlyNonstop could no longer be able to meet the company’s obligations. We therefore realize that we had to close down the operation.
This is a sad day for you, our customers, and for us at FlyNonstop.

With the winter season coming on, revenues were down and the single Embraer ERJ 190-100LR (PH-FNS) (man 19000616) was operated by Denim Air for FlyNonstop. PH-FNS is pictured pushing back at Palma de Mallorca, a frequent destination for the carrier.
