Primera Air goes belly up, Air Nuigini goes belly under, Marriott is drunk on Africa and surprising airline stopover packages
– Primera Air clearly was a bit late to the party of the transatlantic discounters and had the weakest branding – it’s unfortunate but the company ceased all operations overnight
If you have an upcoming flight – call your credit card issuer and file a travel insurance claim (it is almost always included). The consider canceling your trip or rebooking on another carrier.
– Marriott has big plans in Africa and wants to grow by 50% in just 5 years
I’m not a fan of many Protea properties outside South Africa/ Namibia but I hear good things about the newly built Marriott Kigali and Accra
– an Air Nuigini 737 overshot the runway this weekend and made for some scary images – unfortunately one passenger died during the incident
– airline stopover packages can be a great way to save on hotel stays when you have a long layover or transit – this is a good overview
