Via Airlines Suspends Most Operations
The small airline Via Airlines has suspended most of their operations from airports around the United States due to what they describe as a “shortage of pilots”. The only route that will remain in their list of scheduled operations is a flight between Orlando Sanford International Airport and Jackson, Mississippi onboard their Embraer 145 aircraft. The airline will also maintain their on-demand charter operations.
Via Airlines is based in Maitland, Florida, and is a privately held company with 150 employees and 6 jet engine Embraer 145 aircraft. It has a two-decade history of flight operations and prior to this suspension operated in 19 cities across the country.
Any passengers that have tickets booked on Via Airlines should contact the airline to arrange a refund.
