Azzurra Air parks its Avro RJs


The plan to merge Azzurra Air with bankrupt French regional airline Air Littoral has fallen through due to the failure of Investment fund Seven Group, owner of Azzurra to align the necessary financing. Seven Group missed several deadlines set by the court overseeing Air Littoral’s bankruptcy, and finally threw in the towel on 18 December. As a result, the plan to use Azzurra’s RJs on Air Littoral’s routes to Corsica has also fallen through. Five of the airline’s RJs were flown to Exeter for storage on 12 December, and the last two followed a week later, on 19 December.
