WINDJET Situation (Sicilian Low Cost Carrier)

Jump to last reply

For prospective travellers who are not aware of the situation concerning the financially illiquid Sicilian low-cost carrier WINDJET, which has yet to finalize a deal to be acquired by Alitalia, Italian media reports today that all four flights operating out of Rome Fiumicino Airport have been cancelled, and passengers transferred to Alitalia flights.

Apparently, there remains an open issue concerning the documentation of aircraft maintenance which is holding up the merger with Alitalia. The book value of the 12 jets which would be taken over by Alitalia depends on their maintenance schedule and the dates of the most recent maintenance work (which information has reportedly been withheld from Alitalia).

Pending a resolution of the situation, prospective passengers are advised to be very cautious about booking seats on Windjet, and passengers holding seats on Windjet flights should try to contact the carrier for current information. (Good luck!!!).
