Additional Information

Orange2Fly, a charter flight airline set up in September 2015 with a share capital of € 200,000, has applied for bankruptcy in September 2021. The company was in a development stage for its fleet and its flying activity but the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in negative financial results. The airline employed 200 people, and in 2019 it had carried 250,000 passengers. Early in 2021 the carrier had applied for an €8 million loan from one of Greece's commercial banks but this was rejected.
