Air Finland Shuts Down (No, Not Finnair, Air Finland)

Air Finland, a Helsinki-based airline flying charters and scheduled services to leisure destinations in Europe, shut down yesterday due to the typical financial issues cited in these cases.

The airline launched in 2003 and flew chilly Finns to sun destinations in Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The only positive note here is that some airline is going to get to pick up 3 757-200s (which comprised the totality of their fleet).

More than 1,000 passengers were stranded by the shutdown.

    I wonder how many members of staff were made redundant? Lets hope that the recession doesn’t continue to far ahead so we can all recover and get aviation back on track :smile:
