The long-running Codeshare agreement between Fly UK and Metroair will end on November 31st 2022. Statements from both CEO’s on the decision are as follows Matt Lewis – Fly UK “I’d like to thank William, his team and the MetroAir members for all his hard work during the time I’ve been CEO of Fly UK, Both communities and VA’s have benefited greatly from the collaboration. Personally, this culminated with our joint cross the pond event we held together during the height of Covid and lockdown, an event that many joined and enabled us to share our joint passion for virtual aviation as well as bring two communities together for some laughter and discussion at a much needed time in the world. Its been a pleasure working with MetroAir and I wish them all the success in this new era of flight simulation” William Hogarth – MetroAir “It has been an honour to be affiliated with Fly UK and I believe we did set a precedent as being the first two well-established airlines to strike up a partnership in the virtual world. I do wish you all well and hope that the airlines can stay friends as we end our codeshare agreement. ” Both MetroAir and Fly UK can confirm that anyone with memberships at both VAs will not be affected by this move subject to standard policies and activity with each airline’s requirements. MetroAir members who enjoy their European adventures fear not, NewAira services continue in the Balkans area and we’ll have more news in the near future.
Sean has been flying in the virtual world for about 20 years and with Metro Air for 12 years. He is the Chief Technology Officer and runs the technical side of things at Metro.
