Primera Air and IATA codes PF and 6F -- Primera Air Nordic and Primera Air Scandinavia -- have been suspended and will file for bankruptcy , effective 02 October 2018.
The reasoning behind the decision is due to one aircraft affected by corrosion earlier in the year, and delays in its new A321neo aircraft, which led to higher costs and cancellations. Also, the owner was unable to secure financing for the operations.
The airline stated:
Airline Primera Air and IATA codes PF and 6F have been suspended as of today, October 2nd, 2018.
On behalf of Primera Air team, we would like to thank you for your loyalty. On this sad day we are saying Goodbye to all of you.
