AIR BLUE, British Columbia — Air Blue has re-opened its ticketing website for the first time in three years after a year of closure due to financial constraints, the airline announced Wednesday.
AirBlue says it has a “strong financial future” and will continue to offer the travel and flight information service.
But the airline said it had been forced to “drastically reduce its number of aircraft and staff” in order to survive and was working to reopen.
The airline said in a statement that it will now offer an alternative ticketing site called AirBuddy that will offer an online, online-based ticketing service.
The new AirBuddies will be available on a variety of airlines, including United Airlines, JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, Frontier Airlines and Southwest Airlines.
The AirBunnys will include a range of features, including access to the airline’s website, contact information, and the ability to purchase tickets through its app, according to the statement.
AirBuddy is still in its infancy, and it will be in beta testing for a year or more, the company said.
The AirBlue website will be unavailable for six months, but AirBuffy.com will continue running through April 24, 2018.
