Eagles Airlines (AlpiEagle2) Ceases Operations

Sun Dec 04, 2011 4:19 pm

Well there was a thread about what smaller European airlines would dissapear this winter a couple of weeks ago and it seems skyliner is reporting PRIMA (Eagles Airlines) Have ceased operations.

Sucks I kinda liked their colourscheme, Using different colours then the normal light blue or red & its always great to see a Fokker.

^Luckily caught one of their Fokker 100's operating into Luton on a champions League Final flight.


So who will be next to fall?

It's a pity, particularly because the demise of PRIMA Aero Trasporti Italiani (formerly Eagles Airlines) means another two active F100 less in Europe.

Fokker 100 I-GIOA was ferried to WOE at October 27th. I-GIOI arrived at WOE at November 16th. It operated the last flight (Bologna to Catania) at October 30.

The forced renaming and change of management didn't help them. However the company apparently has plans to restart in the summer of 2012 with Boeing 737-400/500.

Yeah I didnt really understand what they did as Eagles Airlines, When they were alpieagles it was more clear.

Yikes they dont give up do they. Wonder what kind of way they will use eagle this time? Maybe Aquile.

On another note.. did Itali Airlines cease operations officially? I know they stopped services a while back because their owner was arrested over some tax scam stuff but never heard if the airline ceased trading.

Well, for Itali On March 11th, 2011, the air operator's certificate has been suspended due to the persistence of some critical issues from the carrier.
So they are not operating any more. Is the company still exist under a legal point of view, this i have no idea.
