Aviation News October 1

Adria Airways Files For Bankruptcy
In what has been a dreadful month for European airlines, September ended with a final victim: Adria Airways, the national airline of Slovenia. Adria Airways follows Thomas Cook Airlines, and two French carriers – XL Airways and Aigle Azur – into bankruptcy in September.
"Due to the opening of insolvency proceedings, all Adria Airways flights from Ljubljana airport were canceled: Amsterdam, Brussels, Vienna, Frankfurt, Copenhagen, Manchester, Munich, Paris, Podgorica, Prague, Priština, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Tirana, and Zurich", the airport announced. Aeroflot, Air France, Air Serbia, Easyjet, Finnair, Lot Polish Airlines, Montenegro Airlines, Transavia, Turkish Airlines and Wizz Air are also active.

Brussels flies to Ljubljana
But there was also good news: Brussels Airlines announced on Tuesday (1 October) that it would be connecting Brussels to Ljubljana six times a week from 4 November. The aircraft to be used will be the Airbus A319.

Thomas Cook stranding 150,000 UK holidaymakers 
And many more in other European countries. The sum insured is "far from being enough":
Thomas Cook tourists remain sitting on part of the damage 
This affects customers who had not yet filed for bankruptcy. Thomas Cook had canceled all trips by 31 October, even if they had already been paid in advance or fully paid.

Versicherungssumme "reicht bei weitem nicht": 
Thomas-Cook-Touristen bleiben auf Teil des Schadens sitzen
Betroffen sind Kunden, die beim Insolvenzantrag noch nicht unterwegs waren. Thomas Cook hatte alle Reisen bis 31. Oktober abgesagt, auch wenn sie schon angezahlt oder voll bezahlt waren.
