“We regret to announce that of today we have sent a petition for bankruptcy of FlyNonstop As,” the company writes on its website.

All flights from today onwards have been cancelled.

The not even seven-month-old airline flew between Kristiansand’s Kjevik Airport and London City Airport in the capital’s East End.

They hoped to appeal to business and leisure travelers.  

“We are now contacting our customers via email and SMS to provide advice and guidance on how to deal with rebooking/purchase of new tickets for their journey,” states the airline.

According to them, SAS is helping FlyNonstop provide customers the opportunity to rebook or buy new tickets at an adjusted price.

This is “provided that there are available seats on the desired travel date and destination. SAS have many frequencies, large network and flies to all our destinations.”

“The possibility that the majority of our customers will find a suitable ticket alternative to the original itinerary will be very good.”

The carrier adds that it “is not responsible for the tickets already purchased from FlyNonstop, or our obligations not being met due to FlyNonstop not flying the established routes.

FlyNonstop had to file for bankruptcy because it had failed to attract new investors over the months, Norwegian media reports say.

“We wish once again to lament the burden placed on you, the passengers, but unfortunately we at FlyNonstop could no longer be able to meet the company's obligations,” the airline writes.

Explaining that “we therefore realize that we had to close down the operation”, the carrier calls it “a sad day for you, our customers, and for us at FlyNonstop.”
