I thought I'd start a second version of this thread, after three carriers which I've flown (Varsity Express, Highland Airways and South Airlines) have disappeared during March alone. It's a morbid figure, but hopefully the tides will begin to turn soon.
Including those which have been renamed/merged/bought out:
Oasis Hong Kong Airlines
Varig Brasil (old)
Apparantly so. AirEvents had arranged to charter their An-30 in a few weeks, but yesterday I received an email saying their AOC had been revoked and the An-30 at least put of for sale. Hopefully flying something like the An-28 instead now, but failing that there is still the An-74 flight going ahead as planned.
