It appears, despite statements to the contrary, the end for Wijet may be here.
After its operations in France closed in December Wijet is not responding to phone calls or emails. Its UK operation went into administration in 2018 leaving a trail of unpaid bills.
An executive had claimed it would continue operations in January from Luxembourg.
Instead, judicial agents, Selarl Montravers Yang-Ting, have listed various Wijet assets for sale. They include the Wijet customer file, brand and domain names wijet.com and wijet.fr, plus an office lease.
The European private jet broker nee operator says it is still moving forward in its plans to develop a new business plan
While it’s not clear that the company is actively taking reservations for immediate travel, its management is saying the negative vibes are from former employees and competitors. It also apparently retains its relationship with Air France which is still featured both on its website and that of the airline, although it also still has a link to its now inactive air operator’s certificate that it gave back when it closed its U.K. subsidiary earlier this summer.
Air France is vowing to stick with its private jet partner as it seeks to launch a new business model
Despite Wijet’s decision to shutter its U.K. subsidiary Blink and return its operating certificate that enables it to fly its own aircraft, commercial airline partner Air France undeterred says the relationship between the two companies will continue.
