Beyond all logic and reason, it looks like Silverjet will be re-launching in the next couple of weeks. The airline has received an investment from an Irish group and, assuming all the papers gets signed etc etc etc, they hope to be flying once again from London Luton to Newark & Dubai.
(On a side note, the Tripmela side of our business is looking to raise some funding right now, and we’re finding it to be not as easy as we had hoped. Yet some group in Ireland thought to themselves, “Gee, an airline seems to be a great investment.” I’m going to go bang my head against the wall for a while. Oh, and if you are interested in investing in an Indian travel publisher, let me know.)
