AtlasGlobal has ceased operations. The airline had faced financial trouble in recent years and temporarily suspended all flights late last year. After restarting flights in December 2019, AtlasGlobal announced last month that it will suspend flights again on a temporary basis, with plans to re-launch on 9th February. However, when flights didn't relaunch, it raised suspicions amongst those in the airline industry that AtlasGlobal might not return.
On 12th February 2020, the airline filed for bankruptcy and posted a final 'goodbye' message on its social media channels. This news comes just a day after another European carrier, Air Italy, ceased operations.
