Grupo Marsans Should Probably Stick To Buses

Another Grupo Marsans Airline bites the dust. This time its Air Comet its Spanish based company that was grounded by Spanish Regulators after a court gave permission for a German bank to seize the fleet for non-payment of loans.

This marks the second time a Grupo Marsans airline has gone out of business or been taken over by the Government as was the case with Aerolineas Argentinas.

According to Wikipedia: Grupo Marsans operates as a tour operator in Spain. It has operations in Spain, France, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina, as well as representations in Latin America. The company was founded in 1910 and is based in Madrid, Spain. Grupo Marsans is a subsidiary of Autobuses Urbanos del Sur, SA.

So perhaps in future they should stick to buses.

This is also bad news for Airbus as Grupo Marsans had many Airbus products on order including 10 A350s and 4 A380s. Earlier this year some of the white tails at Toulouse were revealed to be A330s originally destined for Air Comet.
