This evening, Adria Airways has announced that it will temporarily cease all its flight operations from and to all its bases – Ljubljana, Pristina, Tirana – on Tuesday, 24 September and Wednesday, 25 September.
Decision to temporarily cease flight operations is a consequence of currently unsecured access to fresh cash which airline needs for further flight operations. The airline is at this point intensively searching solutions in cooperation with potential investors. The 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 Airways suggests to its passengers and partners to follow the on-line announcements at www.adria.si and to contact the sales offices where tickets were purchased if they had a flight today or tomorrow.
Star Alliance member Adria Airways was founded in 1961 and provides scheduled and charter flights to and from a number of European destinations. Its fleet consists of 20 aircraft, including 3 Airbus A319s. Adria has a mixed fleet primarily comprising Airbus A319s and Bombardier CRJs, as well as leased Saab 2000s. It was acquired by the German fund 4K Invest in 2016, but underwent a change of majority shareholder earlier this year.
