Air Antwerp ceases operations
Belgian commuter airline Air Antwerp confirmed that it is shutting down.
The company announced the news via a Twitter post on June 11, 2021. Earlier in the day news agency Belga published a written statement of the company's spokesperson.
“<…> the board of directors of Air Antwerp has decided to completely cease the operational activities of the regional airline and to dissolve the company," spokesperson Yves Panneels told Belga.
Air Antwerp operated three daily flights between Antwerp (ANR) and London City Airport (LCY) using its sole Fokker 50 aircraft.
The company was founded as a joint venture between Irish CityJet and Dutch flag carrier KLM. It started operations in 2019 but had to cease them several times through 2020 due to lockdowns.
As KLM’s attempts to find more investors were unsuccessful, the company took the decision to cease operations.
According to Panneels, the contracts of the company's nine employees will be terminated and all current bookings will be refunded.
