Centralwings grounded for good
The end has come for Centralwings. LOT Polish Airlines has decided to finally close its former low-cost subsidiary. Already in September last year Centralwings switched to charter flights, but it needed a wonder to make any revenue from charter flights in winter. So seven planes have been stuck on the tarmac, contributing to further losses.
Contracted charter flights for the summer season will be operated by LOT, who took over commitments from Centralwings. Future of about 200 employees (including this lady on the right :) remains unclear.
Centralwings was created in August 2004. It reported 120 million zł net loss for 2008.
