I dont think they have gone bust, but the CAA has removed their safety certificate, and grounded all their aircraft. Hopefully they can regain the certificate and start flying again...

"Emerald Airways, a small British freight carrier which also flies scheduled service from Liverpool in conjunction with Euromanx, has had its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) suspended by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Whilst nobody is giving details it is thought that the CAA were concerned with the training aspects of the company following several incidents."

Quoting Paulcaz (Thread starter):
have they gone Bust?

Nope - their AOC has just been temporarily suspended, grounding their fleet. Whether or not this will change in the near future is open to discussion....

I'm unsure who's taken over their current operations across the UK, however as of last weekend, a couple of Emerald's regular services out of CVT were being operated by Farnair Hungary with two of their own F27's.

LOL! And here I'm thinking about the charter carrier Emerald Airways that existed here in the US.

I was going to say, "Where have you been? Emerald hasn't flown for a decade!"

Cheers!  Smile

I spoke to the CAA press office yesterday.
Their air operator certificate has been withdrawn on safety grounds.
The fleet is parked up, with at least 6 aircraft at BLK alone.
CAA gave no information on what the next move might be and Emerald did not respond to my press enquiries.

BenAir have taken over the aberdeen mail flights, and presumably a few other routes.

Living on the flight path to CVT I shall miss the sound of the props flying at nil feet above my house at about 0400 !!
