Small Planet fleet at SHJ

Tue Oct 23, 2018 7:28 am

Today, notice most of Small Planet fleet are stored at Sharjah Airport, what happen to it? Lately another fleet LY-SPK is heading to SHJ as well along with most other fleet that are already stored there before.

Do you have the registrations of the aircraft in Sharjah ?
I could quite easily believe everything registered SP- (ie Small Planet Poland) would now be in storage somewhere hot and dry. LY-SPK in particular seems to have been operated by Small Planet Poland as SP-HAB until early September.

I'm aware that now it is almost the end of October, demand for leisure charters within Europe to the beach is declining fast and the aircraft may be leased out or (if the aircraft are old) put into winter storage. I can see only 2 LY- registered aircraft in Sharjah - if more started to appear from the D- or LY- registers it would be more of a concern...

Yup, most of them were their A321's.

Small Planet Lithuania, the parent company of the German and Polish subsidiaries has reportedly now approached the courts in Lithuania for restructuring permission
It has apparently given guarantees to creditors of the German and Polish subsidiaries in the past.

This is not good news for any of the three airlines

Don’t forget the German and Polish parts of the company filed for bankruptcy protection. There were reports in the German media that the German subdivision has found a buyer and that the contract should be signed on Friday. (Their AOC expires end of month).
