The French airline Chalair did not operate the charter flights of the ticket seller Green Airlines at the weekend for reasons that were not communicated in detail. The German company, which had to face the charge of greenwashing in recent months, chartered at short notice from PAD Aviation and North Flying.

The booking situation for flights between Paderborn and Sylt vv was not exactly great. On Friday, Green Airlines commissioned an Embraer Phenom 300 from PAD Aviation. On Sunday, however, the OY-NPG from North Flying was used.

The last mentioned aircraft is a Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner, which was flown in from Aalborg to Paderborn. From there, the 26-year-old turboprop aircraft operated Green Airlines' charter flights. The number of passengers was in the extremely low range on both Friday and Sunday.

Unlike what the name would suggest, Green Airlines is not an airline, but a sales company that chartered aircraft and markets the seats for its own account. With North Flying another airline is used again. In the past, Green Airlines had to change flight partners noticeably often.
