Swiss regional carrier SkyWork Airlines has highlighted its preparations to restart operations.

The Berne-based airline says it will "soon" ready documentation intended to show Switzerland's Federal Office of Civil Aviation that it has sufficient financial resources to operate winter's schedule and next summer's.

"SkyWork Airlines is alive" and "will continue to fly", says the turboprop operator.

It suspended operations on 29 October after FOCA had decided not to renew its operating licence. Earlier in October, the regulator had said the licence was threatened by SkyWork's inability to "assure adequate funding".

Meanwhile, Adria Airways has disclosed that on 6 November it will launch flights from Berne to Berlin Tegel, Hamburg, Munich and Vienna – routes that were previously operated by SkyWork.

The Star Alliance carrier says two Darwin Airline Saab 2000s will be based in Berne.

Earlier this year, Adria acquired a 99% shareholding in Lugano-based Darwin.
