The ticket seller Green Airlines is postponing its debut announced for February 14, 2022 in Weeze, Munich, Berlin and Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden. The company or its unspecified operating carrier had not officially registered the flights at the airports by January 31, 2022 anyway.
In a press release, the ticket seller writes that due to the Omicron Corona variant, the decision was made not to start charter flights from Weeze until March 28, 2022. There is no new date for Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden-Berlin. This route was withdrawn from sale on Monday afternoon.
Interestingly, the press release that the “winter timetable” was being canceled for the time being was made immediately after media inquiries made by Aviation.Direct to the airports in Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, Munich, Berlin and Weeze, as well as to Green Airlines itself. The slot-regulated airports of Berlin and Munich unanimously confirmed that to date no official notification has been received from an operating carrier.
"There are no coordinated flights from Munich to Weeze in the current timetable," says Ingo Anspach, head of the press office at Munich Airport. A spokeswoman for Flughafen Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH said almost exactly the same thing. "To date we have not received any notification from Green Airlines or their operating carriers".
In Weeze, things are different: “Green Airlines informed us that they want to offer flights from Weeze to Berlin, Munich and Sylt. According to today's information from Green Airlines, the service of these destinations is scheduled to take place on March 28.3th. be included at the beginning of the summer timetable. We do not know to what extent the flights have been registered or coordinated at the destination airports. At our airport, the flights are planned accordingly according to the information from the airline," said a spokesman for Weeze Airport.
Green Airlines was confronted by Aviation.Direct with the facts confirmed by the airport media outlets. The ticket seller did not answer the questions sent, but shortly afterwards stopped selling the tickets or switched to March 28, 2022. A press release was then sent out in which, among other things, the postponement was justified with the Omicron variant. There was also no comment on the question of who should actually be the operating carrier of the flights and whether and when the AOC and operating license are expected to be issued by the Federal Aviation Authority.
When asked, the ground handling providers in question also uniformly stated that they had not concluded any corresponding contracts for handling either with Green Airlines or with an operating carrier that could be associated with this company. In view of the fact that the airports have confirmed that the flights have not been registered anyway, this is not surprising.
