Silverjet Financial Woes Threaten Airline

Back in December 2007, MAXjet Airways suddenly quit flying stranding or inconveniencing thousands of passengers who booked flights with the airline. MAXjet was one of three airlines flying between New York and London, with aircraft dedicated to serving business class customers.

EOS Airlines

and Silverjet

are the two remaining air carriers in the mix and now it appears that Silverjet is running into financial difficulties as well. Bloomberg News

is reporting that the airline was only able to fill 54% of its seats for the month of January, well below the amount the air carrier needs (64%) in order to turn a profit.

Silverjet began flying in January 2007 and has promised to begin to turn a profit by March 2008. However, high fuel prices are impacting the airline and the airline’s stock value has dropped as much as 80%. Established air carriers including British Airways have vowed to match Silverjet’s service, putting added pressure on the airline.

In light of this news, CabinManagers is cautioning applicants who are considering employment with Silverjet at this time. Until the airline’s financial picture improves we cannot encourage you to seek work with Silverjet right now.
