New Caribbean Airline BlueSky Delays Launch

SAN JUAN – Grand Cayman-based BlueSky Airlines has postponed its launch to the second half of the year due to the collapse of the European carrier that was supposed to lease aircraft to the new venture, a spokesperson confirmed to Efe on Thursday.

“BlueSky’s focus is now on intensifying its search for alternative aircraft. Last week the carrier accelerated negotiations with potential lessors for new Bombardier Q400s becoming available over the next few months,” BlueSky said in a statement.

Polish regional airline EuroLOT was supposed to supply two planes to BlueSky, which had planned to start operations by the end of June.

“Due to recent events there, culminating with the Polish government’s announcement that it will liquidate EuroLOT by the end of March 2015, BlueSky’s Board of Directors determined that its lease agreement with EuroLOT for Bombardier Q400 aircraft was no longer viable and terminated the contract,” the company said.

“We will announce our planned launch date as well as our intended date to commence reservations and ticket sales, all subject to government approvals,” BlueSky Chairman Kenny Rankin said.

BlueSky plans to offer service to various destinations in the Caribbean and Central America.
