TOKYO - Creditors have chosen ANA, Japan’s largest airline, to sponsor financially troubled Skymark Airlines’ rehabilitation. Skymark is Japan’s third-largest airline.
Delta had offered to back an alternative plan, an indication of its commitment to serving the region.
Masaru Morimoto, Delta’s managing director of Japan, thanked Skymark’s creditors and business partners for their support of the Creditors’ Rehabilitation Plan. The company said while Delta will not be able to support Skymark as a sponsor airline, Delta’s desire remains for Skymark to recover as one of the three largest Japanese airlines.
“Delta’s strategy in Japan remains strong and the company will continue its ongoing focus on improving the customer experience and network offerings,” he said.
