SkyWork Airlines expand fleet
SkyWork Airlines is planning to expand its fleet adding yet another Saab 2000 turboprop. The new Saab 2000 turboprop will be the airline's sixth aircraft of the type and will be used to fly domestic routes from its base in Berne.
The order of the new aircraft shows how far the airline has come since its period of uncertainty in the second half of last year. Unfortunately, SkyWork Airlines had to cancel all operations between 29th October and 31st October last year due to the airline being unable to present essential financial documents when asked by authorities. However, the airline managed to provide the documents by the end of the month and resumed regular services in early November.

SkyWork Airlines will no longer launch Berne—Elba service
The scheduled launch of a new service flying between Berne Airport (BRN) and Marina di Campo Airport (EBA), Elba, will no longer happen due to the fact that the planned runway extension at Marina di Campo is still awaiting approval. The runway extension was put in place to allow SkyWork's Saab 2000 aircraft to safely operate to the airport. However, because the runway development plan is not expected to receive approval for at least another few weeks, SkyWork would only be able to carry a maximum of 35 passengers on the aircraft at once. Consequently, it would not be financially sustainable for SkyWork Airlines to operate the service with limited passenger capacity.
SkyWork first announced its intention to launch a service between Berne and Elba in late May 2018, but now the service will have to wait a little longer. Instead, SkyWork Airlines will operate a service from Berne to Grosseto Airport (GRS) and offer a ferry service from Grosseto to Elba. Unfortunately, this will add a considerable amount of time to the journey.

SkyWork Airlines appeal against the sale of Darwin fleet
SkyWork Airlines have put in an official appeal to the Swiss Federal Supreme Court to stop the purchase of ex-Darwin Airline's fleet of Saab 2000s by Jetstream Aviation Capital.
In a statement, Skywork Airlines stated that they have tried consistently to get the bankruptcy trustee to confirm the details of the bankruptcy estate, but every time they ask, Skywork Airlines are given different information. Additionally, SkyWork believes there is evidence that the information on the bankruptcy has been different for companies involved and, despite asking the bankruptcy trustee, they have still not been given an answer.
Skywork Airlines are looking to purchase two of Saab 2000 aircraft, but the supreme court keeps on blocking them from buying.

SkyWork Airlines flies Berlin to Graz
SkyWork Airlines will be taking on the connection to Graz as part of their new flight plan from Berlin. Every day at 4:10pm, except Saturdays, they will be flying from Berlin-Tegel towards Styria.
The route is part of the new so called W flights: The plane takes off in Bern, towards Berlin-Tegel, flies from there to Graz, back to Berlin and finally back to the capital of Switzerland. The airline is doubling its range of flights from Berlin. The route will be flown using a Saab 2000.
Graz is also known as "little Vienna". The capital of Styria is a shining example of a city, full of Habsburg tradition. Old, stately buildings line the streets and squares. Most of them can be found in the city centre, for example the late Gothic cathedral or Graz Castle, which was erected in the 15th century. Coffee houses attract both tourists seeking a bit of tradition and a young, hipster crowd. The Murinsel (Island in the Mur), the city's second landmark, stands in stark contrast to the city's Baroque splendour. The floating, almost natural looking, platform was built to mark Graz's award of European Capital of Culture in 2003 and houses a café, an amphitheatre and a children's playground. However, Graz is not only a tourist hotspot. Since 2011, the city has held the UNESCO title of the "City of Design", to mark its outstanding innovation and creative achievements.
Hikers and wine lovers will get real bang for their buck in Styria. This particularly green region is a popular travel destination and is well known for its mountains, forests, culinary experiences and of course its outstanding wine. The world-famous pilgrimage site of Mariazell, located in north Styria, attracts more than one million people every year.
'Flights made in Switzerland' is the motto and guiding principle of the Swiss airline with its head office in Bern Airport. This summer, SkyWork Airlines will be flying to 22 destinations with their fleet of Saab 2000s. True to its guideline, all flights and both booking classes include 23kg of free baggage allowance, as well as drinks and a snack during the flight.
SkyWork Airlines suspends operations 29-Oct-2017
SkyWork Airlines CEO Martin Inäbni announced (28-Oct-2017) the carrier failed to receive an operating licence from Switzerland's Federal Office for Civil Aviation (FOCA) for winter 2017/18. Mr Inäbni stated the carrier will suspend operations, effective 29-Oct-2017. He said SkyWork is "working hard on a solution", and is planning to "provide... proof of financing to continue flight operations". Mr Inäbni stated the catchment of Bern Belp Airport is "too small for SkyWork Airlines to operate a year-round operation... therefore essential that we generate additional passenger and turnover outside Bern"

SkyWork Airlines starts Basel to Vienna connection
On 4 September, SkyWork Airlines began a new five times weekly service between Basel and Vienna. Seen celebrating the new connection in the Austrian capital along with the inaugural flight crew are: Martin Inäbnit, CEO of SkyWork Airlines, Belina Neumann, Head of Aviation Marketing and Business Development, Vienna Airport; and Peter Reichert, Sales Manager at SkyWork Airlines.
SkyWork Airlines on 4 September began a five times weekly service between Basel (BSL) and Vienna (VIE). The carrier will operate the 676-kilometre route on its fleet of Saab 2000s of which it currently has three. “In addition to Berne, SkyWork Airlines now serves a second destination from Vienna. Thanks to its contemporary architecture and multifaceted culture, Basel, Switzerland’s third largest city, is especially popular for city breaks,” said Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Vienna Airport.
“The additional destination confirms our good cooperation with the airline, and the importance of flight connections between Austria and Switzerland. On balance, Vienna Airport now offers five destinations and 152 weekly flight connections to Switzerland,” Jäger adds. When referring to OAG schedules, the city pairing of Basel and Vienna is already served, with Austrian Airlines connecting the two cities 12 times weekly on its Q400s. Along with Basel and Berne, Vienna also has regular connections to Altenrhein, Geneva and Zurich in Switzerland.

SkyWork Airlines announced changes to its winter schedule
According to the airline, Berlin, Munich and Vienna will be served by SkyWork Airlines in the same way as in the summer schedule. Changes in the destinations Hamburg, London City and Palma de Mallorca. The published winter timetable for Amsterdam currently only includes days 1, 4, 5.7. This would mean a reduction of six weekly flights, after the planned increase in the summer schedule.
SkyWork Airlines, however, does not intend to reduce the frequency on this route, the opposite should be the case. Adjustments in frequency and time are also available in the flight schedule from Basel (BSL) to London City. The seat load factor on the morning flights was declining, according to the airline. Therefore, they will be discontinued by 11 July 2017. The evening flights remain unchanged. On September 4, however, Skywork intends to extend the offer from BSL. In addition, a further destination, which is scheduled to be launched during the winter season, is being evaluated.
SkyWork Airlines brought Saab 2000s into operation with a SkyWork crew on board
Saab 2000 aeroplane undertook its first scheduled flight with a SkyWork crew on board. The Swedish-made machine begins its service with a flight from Bern to London City via the EuroAirport Basel (SX 522). The launch of this 50-seater aeroplane's service marks the beginning of a new era with a signifi-cant increase in capacity in comparison to the 31-seater Dornier.
The current Dornier fleet, which will now consist of three aircraft, will be gradually replaced with bigger aircraft.
Bernese regional carrier SkyWork Airlines expanded its service offering by adding two new destinations, Heringsdorf and Jersey, and increasing the frequency of flights to London City.
From 12 June to 18 September SkyWork Airlines will be operating a new, once-weekly flight to the booming island of Usedom (Heringsdorf). The Sunday flight will leave Bern at 11:00 and after a brief stopover in Basel will make course for the island in the Baltic Sea.
SkyWork Airlines operates flights to Bern via Basel on a 31-seater plane upholstered in leather. The airline flies out of London City Airport with routes taking just under two and half hours to Bern. In April 2017, SkyWork Airlines and Cologne Bonn Airport celebrated a fifth anniversary of working together. Celebrating the fifth anniversary of the launch, the German airport has marked the success and continuity of the route to the Swiss airline’s base. Having carried more than 60,000 passengers on the service since the inaugural flight on 25 March 2012, SkyWork has operated almost 3,600 flights on the airport pair, Cologne Bonn’s only link to Switzerland’s capital city.
In May 2015, SkyWork Airlines announced it had so far operated with machines from Dornier and Saab. Two Dornier Do328s and three Saab 2000s regularly take off in Berne and bring Skywork Airlines passengers to 18 destinations in eight countries. Until the autumn, the Dorniers are completely flooded. But this is only an intermediate step. The Swiss regional airline has been thinking about the medium-term renewal of its fleet. And this seems to have been a decision. Skywork seeks in a position display namely crew and maintenance staff for Embraer E170, E175, E190 and E195.
The staff will be used for the growth plan, explains the airline. The network will be expanded with new locations, destinations and airplanes. So far, the airline has been concentrating mainly on the Bern region. But in the long run, this is not enough to survive. Skywork therefore wants to become more active at other Swiss airports.The focus is on Basel and Geneva. There she wants to take niche routes, the other left. In addition to the Embraer jets, Skywork also checks the Mitsubishi Regional Jet and the Sukhoi Superjet .
