The second Livingston (New Livingston) suspends operations

Livingston Compagnia Aerea (2nd) (New Livingston) (Milan-Malpensa) finally suspended operations on October 6 after fighting an uphill battle the past few months. The airline issued this statement:

New Livingston, the airline specialized in charter flights, suspends all its flight activities as from October 6. It was a difficult and painful decision, after three years of operations.

New Livingston, a privately owned Italian carrier operating domestic and International flights, was forced to suspend all activities due to the difficult situation in the tourism industry, especially regarding the turmoils in the Mediterranean region and Egypt, as a result of the Arab Spring, and the drastic reduction in demand for flights to Russia due to the ongoing political crisis.

A sharp drop in revenues is attributable also to some unpaid claims such as those of Aeroporto di Rimini, whose amounts for ticket sold were never transferred to the airline and on which the property relied for its revival.

Due to all the above, in addition to the atypic rigidity of some Italian organizations and companies, New Livingston could not carry on its activity, despite all efforts made to continue the operations, both through corporate restructuring and the petition for Concordato in Continuità, in addition to significant investments made by the property.

The intention to suspend the flight activities was previously submitted to the attention of the Court of Busto Arsizio, thus to preserve the company’s assets.

The airline commenced operations on march 31, 2012.

Livingston gets a reprieve, will continue flying after July 14

Livingston Compagnia Aerea (2nd) (New Livingston) (Milan-Malpensa) has won its appeal and will continue to fly with its current Air Operators Certificate (AOC). The company issued this statement:

New Livingston has been granted by Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) the revalidation of its Operating License, as per art. 9, paragraph 1, of EU Regulation n. 1008/2008.

All connections continue regularly and are confirmed as planned. At the same time tickets, reservations and contracts will be honored without any interruption, even after July 14, 2014.

On June 27, 2014, the Court of Busto Arsizio has appointed Mr Oliviero Tessera as judicial commissioner of the procedure of “concordato preventivo con riserva”, whose petition for admission had been submitted by New Livingston on June 25.

The above procedure is intended to strengthen New Livingston financial structure and improve its commercial and industrial efficiency.

New Livingston wishes to thank again the customers, the suppliers and own employees for their trust and constant support.

Livingston to shut down on July 14

Livingston Compagnia Aerea (2nd) (New Livingston) (Milan-Malpensa) will cease operations on July 14 after the ENAC announced the revocation of its Air Operators Certificate (AOC). The airline is guaranteeing its flights until then and is also appealing the decision.

On June 25 the airline issued this statement:

New Livingston has filed a petition with the Court of Busto Arsizio for the admission to the settlement with creditors procedure pursuant to article 161, paragraph 6 of the Italian Bankruptcy Law (so called “concordato preventivo”).

New Livingston resolved to apply for the above mentioned instrument, in order to overcome a temporary financial crisis ascribable to, inter alia, the bankruptcy of Aeradria S.p.A., significant delays in collecting certain credits and the recent revocation of the PSO route Alghero – Roma Fiumicino and vice versa (in connection with such measure, a claim against Regione Autonoma della Sardegna is still in progress). The above, in compliance with the so-called “par condicio creditorum”.

New Livingston has already provided to ENAC the documentation needed in order to immediately obtain the revocation of the suspension measure of its carries license starting from 00:01 of  July 14, 2014 or the issuance of a provisional carrier license, on the basis of article 9, paragraph 1, of the Regulation (EC) No. 1008/2008 and paragraph 4.6 of the Circular ENAC EAL-16 of 27 February 2008.

New Livingston will continue its full operation of scheduled connections guaranteeing its high standards of quality and safety.

The second version of Livingston started operations on March 31, 2012.

Previously on December 15, 2011 Riccardo Toto bought the assets of defunct Livingston Energy Flight (1st) from the company in receivership. The name “Livingston” was reborn. The airline is privately held.

The company currently operates three Airbus A320s and the main route is from Rome to Alghero, Sardinia.
