Stricken Euroscot attracts interest

BOURNEMOUTH-based carrier Euroscot Express claims several airlines have expressed an interest in buying the stricken carrier's assets.

Euroscot called in administrators Deloitte after failing to secure $5m in new working capital last month.

Chief executive Jack Romero said unnamed airlines were interested in Euroscot's air operators' certificate and European slots.

"We are in receivership and are looking to sell the airline," he said. Romero said a deal could be done by mid-September.

He said Euroscot slots in Amsterdam and Frankfurt were available. The airline had planned services to the two cities this year.

Gill Airways, which supplied aircraft to Euroscot, has taken over the Bournemouth routes to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

On July 19, Travel Weekly exclusively revealed Euroscot had made 22 staff redundant after the new capital failed to materialise.

The Civil Aviation Authority confirmed Gill had taken responsibility for Euroscot customers under the Air Travel Organiser's Licence scheme.
