Adria Airways temporarily ceases flights for two days due to a lack of cash

Adria Airways temporarily ceased all its flight operations from all its three bases in Ljubljana, Pristina, and Tirana at 23.30h last night (23 September) for today (24 September) and tomorrow (25 September) due to financial problems.

The Slovenian carrier said in a press statement it advises its passengers to check who their carrier is before they arrive at the airport and if it is Adria Airways then they should contact sales offices where tickets were purchased.

The airline added: “Decision to temporarily cease flight operations is a consequence of currently unsecured access to fresh cash which airline needs for further flight operations.

“Company is at this point intensively searching solutions in cooperation with potential investor. Goal of everyone involved is to make Adria Airways fly again and that ceasing of operations is indeed temporarily.

“The company deeply regrets the situation and apologizes to all its passengers and partners.”

Adria has been having problems since the turn of the year and in January 2019, announced it would shut down its short-lived focus city operations at Paderborn Lippstadt Airport in Germany which consisted of three routes.

At the same time, major cuts to its route network from the airline’s home base in Ljubljana were made to Brač, Bucharest, Dubrovnik, Düsseldorf, Geneva, Hamburg, Kiev, Moscow and Warsaw being terminated.

Adria Airways operates a fleet of 20 aircraft to 18 scheduled destinations.
