Cobalt Aero last night grounded its fleet after its main investors suspended continued funding. The airline issued this statement:
Cobalt regrets to announce that it will be cancelling all flights as of 23:50 pm on October 17, 2018 due to indefinite suspension of Cobalt’s operations.
As a result, future flights or services provided by Cobalt will be cancelled and will no longer operate.
Passengers who have un-flown tickets are instructed not to go to Larnaca Airport or any departure airport tomorrow, October 18, 2018 as no Cobalt flights will operate and no Cobalt staff will be present.
For refunds, please contact your credit card provider or Travel Agent.
We sincerely apologise once again and would like to thank our very loyal customers for their support over the last two years of Cobalt operations.
