Flew them last year from Nadi to Apai. My biggest worry then was if fijiairways had enough replacements for their 737 max (they didn't and we got stuck in kiribati).

The crash of last year certainly didn't help.

Not very surprising indeed.
The aircraft they leased from TUI Belgium for the Northern winter were returned to the lessor over the past couple of days.

I am assuming this has not been made public yet since I can't find an article anywhere? I believe they did a lot of sports charters which are non - existent right now.

It's public in the sense that they've filed the Chapter 11 petition in a federal bankruptcy court. I would imagine the press will eventually pick up on it.
To my knowledge, they did sports charters and packaged vacation charters, neither of which are viable in the current situation.

Those airplanes were operated by TUI Airlines Belgium.

That's nothing special. The 737s which Sunwing leased from Transavia returned as well early. However, they haven't filed for Chapter 11.

The OP gave a link to a court docket - regrettably requiring an account. The court record is as official as it gets.

No. These planes returned to their homebase. Not quite the same.

NO, it is not.. they returned to home base at the (shortened) end of the charter season, just as they did last year.

That's a pretty out of the way and very interesting place to get stuck in. Not that there's many other places to get stuck in out there.

Wasn't it an ACMI lease? I guess I should have said aircraft and crew were returned...
TUI can't actually operate domestic flights or flights between the US and points not in the EU under their own name, can they?

Apparently all aircraft are leased.

Does that mean that the owners can just take them back?.

I suspect that Tui are relieved that they have theirs's back in Belgium.

They're looking to break leases on N733MA, N738MA and N739MA. Unable to load PDF but source is court motion:
"As part of the costs savings measures, the Debtor seeks approval to reject the Aircraft Leases set forth on Exhibit “A” (collectively, the “Rejected Leases”) for the aircraft with United States Registration Numbers N733MA, N738MA and N739MA."

Running a charter airline entirely with new and newish leased aircraft never made much sense to me but they were so established that they probably figured they'd be fine.

Oh no, this is something that can only been seen in Europe (I mean - US operators operating under their own brand and stealing jobs in the EU).

Assuming that the Tui aircraft are no longer part of the picture, that leaves the following;

N733MA Avolon RTL (stated above)
N735MA SMBC MIA last flight 21/03/2020
N738MA Aercap RTL (stated above)
N739MA Aercap RTL (stated above)
N749MA ACG Not flown in last 7 days
N758MA Amentum MIA last flown 21/03/2020

Assuming the courts agree, presumably the lease companies get their three planes back, and now try to find new operators.

Do Miami Air continue to pay the lease fees on the others. Is Miami Air still operating flights?.
LF dates from FR24, reg from airfleets.

They're operating limited military charters and intend to restructure with the remaining 3 planes as their go-forward fleet.

I guess the end of Cuba charter flights has hit them hard. Tour operators competing against the majors who fly regularly to HAV is a tough one, therefore lack of cuba contracts.

Eastern/Swift can be next.

Hey everyone, it seems there’s one news site that just reported on the Miami Air International bankruptcy. They also summarised the status of the fleet which is pretty interesting. Some of you were speaking about TUI Belgium and how they leased planes to Miami Air - according to this article, they’ve all been returned to Brussels.

...and as a Canadian air carrier nor would they. They’d enter the CCAA in Canada. However, I don’t expect them to.

How are other airlines their biggest debtors, such as KL, DL, and 5X? I can understand fuel, maintenance, and unpaid landing fees, but other airlines?

Those are the unsecured creditors, which would not include the lessors. They're paying ~$200k per month in rent for each of the three leased planes.

I know Miami Air had at least two, maybe three, NHL charter contracts (New Jersey, Pittsburgh and (possibly) Tampa Bay). In the past, they also had the Miami Heat (NBA) charter contract - the Heat were one of three teams which opted to use private charter companies instead of the NBA's contract with DL. Miami Air also had a couple of NFL contracts (Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers), but lost both (Dolphins to Atlas, Steelers to DL/AA) along with several college/NCAA charter contracts/bids.
2019: DAL, MCI, PHX, LAS, DFW, SAT, ORD, SLC, SEA, DTW, PHL, MIA, LAX; B73G (WN x3), B738 (WN, AA, DL), A20N (NK), MD83 (AA), B788 (AA x2), CS1 (DL), B739 (DL), B712 (DL), B752 (AA), B763 (AA), B77W (AA), B789 (AA)

This is a long time coming. They have been operating below a sustainable number of block hours/month for years. The lawsuits following the accident in Jacksonville are starting to pile up. Following the accident the impending sale of the airline was halted. It’s sad indeed as Miami Air has been the gold-standard for narrow-body aircraft charters for a generation.

Their customers are tempted away by lower prices and come begging back. They fly wherever the news is...war, sports, disasters, politics, celebrity.

I genuinly hope they can reorganize for the sake of their wonderful employees and (usually) lucky passengers.

Klm component services was likely doing the reinspection and any repairs needed at the end of each season Delta was likely parts/repairs/ground handling

Bankruptcy for an airline usually means the reverse. The airline can continue to keep planes under existing leases although it can file to reject leases or other contracts with the approval of the bankruptcy judge. Amounts in arrears before the filing end up being claims against the bankruptcy estate. Now, a lessor can try to go to court to terminate a lease but the judge probably won't let them take the aircraft back if the airline stays current with what it owes post-petition. Sometimes filing for lease rejection is a negotiating tactic to induce a lessor to reduce rates on the lease as well.

Borrowed parts, outsourced maintenance, facilities. DL does a ton of maintenance for other carriers through Delta Tech Ops.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

I flew on Miami Air back when they had 727’s in the late 90’s on charters from JFK-PLS and back. N806MA and N803MA to be precise. I remember them being very pleasant flights. I’ll never forget the sunset approach we did to runway 22L over Long Island, and parking at the old IAB next to what I am pretty sure was a Laker DC-10. We used the mobile lounges to deplane.

Sorry to hear that they are a victim of the COVID crisis. Hope the crews and employees can find other employment soon and wish them well.

I'm sad to hear this! Miami Air have been regulars at AMS in the summer season, operating leases for no less then 3 Dutch airlines. They've been around almost every summer since 2007 or something. It started with Martinair first bringing them in, later followed by Transavia, and eventually ArkeFly (now TuiFly). Everyone around here who has worked with them always held them in very high regard, from what I've been able to tell.

I was lucky enough to fly them myself once, on one of their Transavia flights.

I don't believe charter carriers were eligible for CARES funding, so I'd probably say no.

The incident at JAX a few months ago couldn't have helped them either.

That's incorrect. Charter carriers have received CARES Act grants.

I assume the three NHL teams that were using LL (Penguins, Devils and Lightning) will switch to Delta, Swift Air or another charter airline... if this season resumes or the league skips to next season.

I wonder if Swift will be one of the next ones to go under. The US government tightening restrictions on flights to Cuba basically wiped out their MIA operation and now the pandemic.
