No Waves until September

The little Channel Island airline Waves has put a halt to all flying until September due to previous licensing problems.

The air taxi service launched in November and billed itself as the 'uber of the skies', however, it didn't get the start it hoped for. The little air taxi firm was prevented from selling single seats following complaints from Blue Islands. 

Waves CEO, Nick Magliocchetti said, "The application process was lengthy and the delays damaged momentum at a time when Waves was gaining significant ground, which ultimately had a detrimental effect on the business, our staff and our customers."

The company will now use the next two months to refocus its business mdel and "strengthening its position in the market" according to Nick Magliocchetti, the airline will also spend part of the next two months looking at how the airline can expand its fleet and flying routes.  

The airline is due to restart flying on 1st September and all passengers set to fly with the airline before this date will be offered a full refund.
