Blue Wings, a Dusseldorf-based scheduled and charter carrier that suspended operations on April 1 after the authorities revoked its operating license, plans to re-launch full service Friday.

Oeger, a German/Turkish tour operator, had been one of the carrier’s main clients and the cancellation meant it was unable to present up-to-date economic data on its remaining schedule in a manner that would satisfy the civil aviation authority. It had been operating on a temporary certificate issued in January. The source said the carrier expects LBA to clear it for operations following submission of new data today reported ATW.

Blue Wings also recently received €35 million ($47.2 million) in financing, although the source did not reveal the origin.

“Since we have said that we plan to operate again, we have received a lot of orders from tour operators, like TUI, to fly charter routes. Our capacity is nearly sold out,” the source said, adding that the end result of the licensing ordeal is a positive one as now Blue Wings can focus on a variety of tour operators instead of counting on just one for a majority of its business.
