Spanair Ceases Operations

Madrid, Spain based Spanair ceased operations today after it ran out of funds and the government announced it can't afford to help anymore. The already financially troubled airline took a devastating blow in 2008 when 154 people were killed in Spain's worst aviation related crash in 25 years. The last Spanair flight ever landed at 10:00 PM local time today. The government said that they can no longer afford to support the airline due to increased competition regulations and the current global economy. Many passengers that had booked flights are most likely going to be out their money, as the company has already shut down its website. Spanair's fleet of 36 aircraft will most likely be sold to other carriers.
