The German holiday and charter airline Sundair filed a so-called protective shield proceedings with the Stralsund district court. This is a special form of insolvency proceedings in self-administration that was most recently used, for example, by the competitor Condor.
The carrier confirmed that the application had been brought to the court, but stressed that the wages of the workforce are secured through the employment office. With the help of the protective shield procedure, you want to reposition yourself quickly. This also includes that leasing contracts are to be renegotiated. The flight tickets should remain valid. Company boss Marcos Rossello assumes that Sundair will be a strong partner for tour operators and airports even after the corona pandemic. It has been proven “before Corona” that Sundair has a viable business model.
The Stralsund District Court appointed a person who is now very well known in the aviation industry as the provisional trustee: Attorney Lucas Flöther, who has already been assigned this position at Condor and Air Berlin, has also been employed at Sundair.
