RIP Palestinian Airlines

Back in July 2020, I posted about Palestinian Airlines, to which hundreds of salaries were being paid. It was also something Tim Sebastian had grilled Saeb Erekat about a few years earlier.

Alas, Palestinian Airlines is no more.

The Palestinian Authority announced on Tuesday that it will be closing its airline service – Palestinian Airlines – after 25 years of limited activity, the Palestinian News Network (PNN) reported.

The decision to liquidate the company was finalized and announced on Tuesday by the Palestinian Transport and Communications Ministry. But it wasn’t unexpected. In September, the airline offered for its remaining aircraft – two Fokker 50’s.

Bye Fokkers.
