As was announced earlier, Smartwings and subsidiary CSA (Czech Airlines) are stranded by the coronavirus crisis and flight cancellations. Smartwings attracts a loan of 2 billion Czech crowns in four banks with an 80% state guarantee.

CSA is in bankruptcy. They register unpaid receivables of about 1.8 billion Czech crowns, of which one billion is in unpaid passenger tickets, and the rest is owed by the supplier’s company.
