Hello fellow a.netters -
I have had a phone call from my friend at Manchester Airport, who says, 2 Sky Europe aircraft has been parked on remote stand, with airport vehicles parked behind them.
This is typical practice for an airline not being allowed to depart the airport for uncontrollable events.

Is this the end for Sky Europe?

Sky Europe has been almost bound to disappear for sometime now. If that moment is now, I wouldn't be surprised.

Hopefully another airline would be able to pick-up its 737-700s at bargain prices.

I can't find anything about this anywhere - they did cancel their Prague - Kosice flights from 27/10 onwards today, but that could hardly be related...

According to the airports website one SkyEurope departure is delayed:

NE197 15:20 Kosice Delayed 17:05

There is a similar post to yours on PPrune currently.

Don't shoot the messenger, but I am also informed that Turkish airline Freebird has stopped operations.

NGP has just departed from Manchester but NGD (owned by GECAS) remains impounded for now. NGP is owned rather than leased by Sky Europe

It said that when I looked at 17:20 and then was taken off 'the screen' at 17:30!

Bit like that choir who had originally booked with Zoom, then went to XL after Zoom went under, and the double whammy has already been felt!

Never understood the investors that were prepared to sink tens of millions of € into a company that went from bad figured to very bad figures..
Now the next cap increase is requested -another one..
They will not make it another six months..

A Freebird flight arrived at DUB this evening so they are still in operation.

It seems impossible too book anything with SkyEurope, any combination I tried returns:
"An error has occurred. Please try again. If the error persists, please contact the airline."

The aircraft are flying and all flights are working fine. It must have been a one-off or something else.
