Berlin-based airline Germania goes bankrupt

Whilst it shouldn’t impact many HFP readers, it is worth knowing – as a sign of the parlous state of European aviation – that Berlin-based airline Germania filed for bankruptcy on Monday.

Originally a charter airline, it had moved heavily into scheduled services in recent years.  Whilst it did not fly to the UK, you may have seen or even flown on one of its aircraft last year as British Airways was using the airline to operate some BA flights from Gatwick over the Summer.

    I just got a targeted email from SPG, double elite nights on all eligible nights from the date after you register until 30 April. So maybe these offers are slowly making their way out.
