Passengers at Manchester were disappointed
A Swedish airline that served Manchester from Gothenburg has gone bankrupt and cancelled all its flights.
City Airline flew to a number of Swedish airports and destinations but some passengers were expecting to fly to Sweden on the 9am flight from Manchester and were disappointed to find the flight abandoned. During the summer there were two flights daily to Gothenburg and one on Sunday. The route was popular with business executives.
Travel insurance can help compensate for unforeseen circumstances such as these.
City Airline is a subsidiary of Skyways Express and they said on their website passengers who had hoped to travel in the near future should get in touch with their travel agency "to investigate the possibilities of compensation or re-booking of flights".
The statement on the website continued: "For passengers who have booked flights directly via our website we regret to inform that it is currently not possible to re-book or receive compensation via Skyways.
"Passengers who have booked via our website and paid using credit card are recommended to investigate compensation via the credit card company."
