Previously on October 16, 2017, SkyWork Airlines made this announcement:
The Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) has limited the operating license of Swiss airline SkyWork Airlines AG for economic reasons.
Airlines must provide evidence to the FOCA that their company is adequately financed to ensure the correct operation of the airline. Therefore, their economic performance is periodically checked by the FOCA.
Despite intensive efforts, SkyWork Airlines is still unable to provide proof of financing for the 2017/18 winter schedule. The FOCA therefore limited the operating permit until the end of the summer flight schedule 2017 to enable SkyWork Airlines to provide proof of financing during this period.
The new deadline is October 28, 2017 at the close of the summer schedule. SkyWork Airlines has not yet received a new AOC to continue operations past October 28, 2017. The company issued this statement:
Due to the still missing operating licence for the winter flight plan, all flights of October 29, 2017 will be cancelled.
