Head office

SkyWork Airlines AG[2] is a Swiss airline, with its head office in Belp near Bern[3][4] and its base at Bern Airport. It primarily operates scheduled flights to destinations across Europe, with additional charter operations throughout the summer months.

History[edit]

Previously the airline's head office was in the north terminal of Bern Airport in Belp.[5][6][7]

The last of formerly three Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 has left the fleet and has been transferred to Air Berlin by October 2014.[8] Also in October 2014, London-Southend replaced London-City as SkyWork's destination for London.[9] By April 2015, SkyWork announced to cut down their London operations from 12 return flights per week to 9 per week.[10]

Starting from July 2015, SkyWork serves London-City via a stopver at EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg. In 2016, the airline introduces flights from Bern to Usedom via Basel as well.[11]

In November 2015, SkyWork announced the termination of their ACMI contract with Darwin Airline by December 2015. As all other services will be taken over, the route to London-Southend will be terminated due to capacity restrictions.[12] In the same time, SkyWork announced to retire their entire fleet of Dornier 328-110s by autumn 2017 which are gradually replaced with Saab 2000s.[12] Since October 2016, SkyWork has had an interline agreement with Air France-KLM, integrating Bern into the group's global network through Amsterdam.[13]
