Citywing has announced itís gone into liquidation, meaning an end to flights from Blackpool Airport to the Isle of Man.



Itís after two weeks of disruption for the company following the grounding of airline Van Air in late February.

A statement from Citywing directors says the company has found it difficult to source aircraft to continue to offer its scheduled services.

They say a liquidator is to be appointed, who will advise on how to get refunds on tickets in due course.

The full statement from Citywing:
''As a result of Van Air losing their route licenses on Friday 24th February 2017, the company has found it difficult to source suitable viable aircraft to fulfil our contracts. The company has tried to offer a service whilst suffering considerable losses but these have proved unfortunately to be commercially unsustainable.

It is therefore with much sadness and deep regret that the Directors of Citywing Aviation Services Limited have had to take the difficult decision to close the company today and put the company into liquidation. This decision has not been taken lightly and has been made to protect creditors.

Flights on 11th March 2017 onwards have all been cancelled

We request that you do not turn up at the airports for your flights as there will be no one to assist.

A liquidator will be appointed and they will advise in due course on how to get a refund on your tickets.

There will also be guidance on the UK CAA website from Monday 13th March 2017.''
