Some hope for those seeking compensation after the collapse of the Toronto – Zagreb service with SkyGreece.
Just weeks after the much publicised introduction of direct flights from Toronto to Zagreb June 2015, airline SkyGreece announced it was ceasing operations forthwith, leaving passengers stranded in Toronto, Zagreb and Greece. The airline cited the poor economic situation in Greece and technical issues as reasons, and the website and other social media channels stopped functioning soon after, making it all but impossible for passengers to pursue compensation.
In what looks like a ray of hope, a trustee – Ernst and Young – has been appointed to deal with claims. A web page has been setup, with email address and phone number, through which claims can be processed online. Visit the website here.
SkyGreece has not given up on its ambitions to return to the aviation market, and the airline released the following statement:
“SkyGreece is working with the trustee to develop a restructuring plan. Although the success of the company’s restructuring effort cannot be assured, the restructuring proceedings are the best way to see that all parties, including passengers, are compensated fairly.”
As TCN reported a few days ago, there is some other good news for passengers interested in using the Toronto – Zagreb route, with Air Transat announcing that they will start operations in June 2016. Read the article here.
