Citywing was an airline in business on the Isle of Man. It started operating in 2012 and was put out of business in 2017. Headquaters of Citywing were based in Ballasalla, Hangar 9 of Isle of Man Airport.
Its destinations where limited to regions within the UK. Either temporarily or regularly included were:
- Isle of Man
Interestingly Citywing was an airline without owning any aircraft. It leased or chartered aircrafts, whenever needed. In the end, this was what caused the companies bankruptcy. When the partners Citywing relied on in chartering aircrafts ran into trouble and lost their licenses to operate in the UK Citywings’ bankruptcy followed as a consequence.
This is what Citywing wrote about itself in their welcome section on their website:
