Turkish charter carrier Sky Airlines has suspended operations.
The Antalya-based airline says the last three flights planned for 3 June were cancelled and the passengers taken to hotels. "Because of problems collecting money from the European tour operators, we have to stop operations," says Sky. It is unclear when operations will restart.
Last year, Sky phased out its Airbus A320 narrowbodies and reduced its Boeing 737 fleet. It has a total of seven jets in its inventory.
In August 2011, the carrier ceased scheduled domestic operations to concentrate on the European charter market. It had begun serving domestic destinations from Sabiha Gökçen airport in January of that year.
German Sky Airlines - linked to the Antalya-based carrier via its affiliate Kayi Group - suspended flights in December 2012, returning two Boeing 737-800s to lessors. The Düsseldorf-based airline had emerged in 2010.
