WindJet Passengers' Fate

Yesterday (Monday, 13 August) found thousands of WindJet passengers stranded at Catania airport - its hub - and elsewhere in Italy as the Sicily-based airline failed to cover its operating expenses and cancelled all service at the height of the Summer holiday season. Following attempts at a sale to Alitalia, the company has now become a victim of the current economic recession. It may not be the only one to do so.

Another "private" airline in Italy, Rome-based Blue Panorama, has also sought acquisition by Alitalia.

WindJet customers who purchased tickets for future flights (through November) may request refunds but, frankly, receiving them may not be simple.
