The charter marketer Green Airlines caused quite a stir in the last few days, because after only a few legs the Bulgarian Alk Air said goodbye. The Romanian Just Us Air did not come at all and made it publicly clear that, contrary to the pompous announcement by Green Airlines, they were doing this have not concluded a contract at all.
Already last week provided three completely different reasons, two from the charter marketer himself, for confusion. The statement by Alk Air that the Boeing 737-300 had been withdrawn gave an idea of what was behind the fact that the Bulgarian airline has ended its cooperation with Green Airlines.
Alk Air has now let the cat out of the bag for Aerotelegraph.com and has confirmed that Green Airlines “has not met the contractual payment for the flights”. Therefore, the charter contract was terminated prematurely and without notice.
It is also noteworthy that Green Airlines was confronted with the various reasons (customer service: Alk Air canceled; press office: insufficient capacity and environmental protection; Alk Air: withdrawn from the contract) by Aviation Direct in the previous week, but they did not bother clear up this inconsistency. It is only the icing on the cake that it was announced in a media release and on social media that Just Us Air will operate the charter flights from Paderborn and Rostock and that tickets could be booked, but the Romanian airline then resisted and explained that one with Green Airlines have not signed a contract.
The statement by Alk Air leaves room for speculation as to why the “airline partners” literally give the doorknob to this charter marketer. The company is based in Karlsruhe from a well-known mailbox provider and the administration in Paderborn mentioned in job advertisements is also unknown, at least at the airport there.
