LTE has announced it has suspended operations to the Spanish authorities. Sorry for not having a link (well not an english one anyway) but yet another blow to the Spanish travel industry after Futuras collapse last month.

Rummors they don´t have any money to pay for fuel. Wonder if they will be
able to restart or will just disappear like Futura did. Only really leaves Iberworld
as a Spanish charter player in the market although Air Europa/Spanair do a little!

More holes for tour companies to fill......

LTE deja de operar por problemas 'bancarios'

MARÍA J. GARCÍA | MARISA RECUERDO
PALMA.- "Ya iban muchas amenazas de cierre", confirmaba anoche una azafata de LTE al hilo de la suspensión de actividades de la aerolínea charter. Pero a pesar de los rumores, la plantilla confiaba en un futuro asentado, sobre todo, en los contratos con Arabia Saudí donde la firma tenía varias tripulaciones en activo.

They were due to do HUY-TFS today, a contract they picked upo last month after Futura's collapse ...

What are LTE's links with MyAir?

Source? The website Flysur.com seemed to work as normal, although I didn't manage to book a flight.



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

The airline still operates flights. Yesterday I saw the arrival of the sole ATR42 from ODB at BCN airport fully loaded.

There are rumours about no air controllers at Cordoba Airport but flights are still running.

Thats a pity. I fly in and out of Palma, where they are based, all the time and I never really noticed them. Guess their operations are so well run their aircraft are always airborne.

There was speculation in other threads some time ago that even in a credit crunch people would still go on holiday. It would appear that is not correct.

The official website of NWI - Norwich International, where LTE operated some scheduled flights, says that the suspension is only temporary (though that could change!)
http://www.norwichairport.co.uk/news.asp?id=21

Here's to hoping that they pull through, though my hopes are not high.

Flights booked: none :(

EC-JTA A320 departed Thurs 23/10 on a HOLA callsign HOA302P,
so presume something must be sorted at least. Have Hola AIrlines taken
over LTE?

cheers
