2 Airlines Shut Down: Goodbye, Caljet and OLT Express Germany

Two airlines you’ve never heard of announced shutdowns this week:

Caljet, a so-called “indirect” air carrier (its flights were operated by XTRA Airways), will fly its last flight on February 5th, less than a month after it launched. The charter company offered nonstop to Mazatlan, Mexico, from Denver, Houston, San Antonio, Los Angeles and Oakland. They blame timeshare owners (?) in Mazatlan for not buying tickets as quickly as the airline expected.

OLT Express Germany shut down after its parent company decided not to throw any more money at the airline after it suffered some financial setbacks. You will likely not remember that sister company OLT Express Poland closed up shop in mid 2012. OLT Germany flew these routes:

Hamburg – Dresden
Hamburg – Karlsruhe/Baden
Munich – Saarbrücken
Munich – Münster/Osnabrück
Zurich – Bremen
Zurich – Dresen
Bremen – Copenhagen
Bremen – Toulouse

    My wife and I flew to Mazatlan on Cal Jet on January 24 and were to return on February 7th….Cal Jet closed business on February 5th and while they promised to help get us back to Denver, they didn’t….we had to book seats on U.S. Airways for an additional $1,000 plus dollars…we have received e-mails from Cal Jet and George Wozniak that they will reimburse us the cost of the return flight, but so far nothing has happened…do we have an recourse?…is there anyone to contact in order for us to get our money back for the return flight?
