Sundair Owner Marcos Rossello Looking to Launch New Airline in Croatia

Namely, aeroTELEGRAPH reports that Sundair’s Marcos Rossello is hoping to introduce a new airline in Croatia.

“The plan is to launch at the end of April or beginning of May,” said Rossello in an interview with aeroTELEGRAPH, and added that they are currently working on obtaining the AOC, which stands for Air Operator Certificate.

The project is called Fly Air 41 – based on the aviation IT company, of which Rossello was once the managing director. However, the new airline will not necessarily keep that name.

“We don’t want to comment on details yet,” Rossello said.

The new airline should not be a subsidiary of Sundair and should not replace the German airline. Rossello vehemently contradicts such reports in the Croatian media. 

“Sundair is committed to Germany as a business location and to maintaining jobs in Germany,” Rossello said. Sundair is also expected to leave its protective shield proceedings in the next two months.  

Recall, Sundair will operate to Brač Island this season from Dusseldorf and Berlin. 

Rossello’s new airline hopes to open up new business areas in Croatia. 

“We are in talks with our business partners and also with tour operator Schauinsland-Reisen,” concluded Rossello.

Ex Yu Aviation adds that this could be the second new airline to launch operations in Croatia this year, after Croatian start-up ETF Airways plans to work from April this year, given all necessary permits are received. 

ETF plans to focus on Croatia’s coast, specifically Dubrovnik, Pula, Split, and Zadar, from France, Germany, and the UK. You can read more about ETF Airways HERE.
