Last winter I made a trip together with some friends from ARN to BZO to go skiing in the Dolomites. The last leg of the trip was from MUC to BZO on an Air Alps Do328. A really nice experience and the approach to BZO was truly amazing. However a few months before the trip I read that Air Alps was in bad financial shape but that some investor had put money into the company so that they would be able to fly for at least another year. Does anybody know how they are doing now? Have they recovered or are they still struggling to survive? The reason I am wondering is that we may do the same trip this winter but I am a bit worried to make a reservation on Air Alps if they still struggles. Any input about the financial status of Air Alps would be much appreciated.

Not really a serious view to the financial status of Air Alps, sorry
But I happen to see two a/c (DO328) of Air Alps on approach to AMS/EHAM last Thursday (Aug. 18) since I happen to live in a village just beneath the track of runway 18L-36R.
The arrival/departure list of AMS/EHAM for tomorrow shows the arrival at 08.05 of A60070/KL2860 from Salzburg and the departure of A60071/KL2861 at 08.40 to Salzburg. As far as I know these flights are operated by Air Alps with DO328 a/c. So I think they still do operate, at least to/from the Netherlands.
Their website is also still available. http://www.airalps.at/
