Passengers warned as airline cancels all flights and suspends operations

The cancellations come after Danish budget carrier Primera Air ceased trading earlier this month.

An airline has announced it is cancelling all its flights and indefinitely suspending operations.

Cobalt, which has services from Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick, warned travellers on Wednesday night not to arrive for flights.

The Cypriot airline said all flights would be cancelled as of 11.50pm that night.

A Heathrow Airport spokesman said: “We will provide assistance to customers who turn up at the airport tomorrow.”

The cancellations come after Danish budget carrier Primera Air ceased trading earlier this month.

In a statement, Cobalt said: “Future flights or services provided by Cobalt will be cancelled and will no longer operate.

“Passengers who have un-flown tickets are instructed not to go to (Cyprus’s) Larnaca airport or any departure airport tomorrow, October 18, as no Cobalt flights will operate and no Cobalt staff will be present.”
