Skybus Airlines Officially Shut Down

Here's some important information if you had made airfare travel arrangements via Skybus airlines for any date after April 4th, 2008.

The Skybus wesite (www.skybus.com) has the following announcement that the company has had to shut down operations due to economic struggles:

Skybus Airlines will cease all operations effective Saturday, April 5.
Skybus struggled to overcome the combination of rising jet fuel costs and a slowing economic environment. These two issues proved to be insurmountable for a new carrier.

We deeply regret the impact this decision will have on our employees and their families, customers, vendors, suppliers, airport officials and others in the cities in which we have operated. Our financial condition is such that our Board of Directors felt it had no choice but to cease operations.

Passengers holding reservations for Skybus flights scheduled to depart on or after Saturday, April 5, 2008 should contact their credit card companies to arrange to apply for a refund. More information for customers and others will be made available on the Skybus web site (www.skybus.com) as it becomes available.

All flights for Friday, April 4 will be completed. Passengers holding reservations on flights for Friday, April 4 should check in for their flight at a Skybus kiosk at the airport instead of the Skybus website.

This is unfortunate news as Skybus offered some very dirt cheap airline tickets as low as $10 a seat for early birds.
