Company disregarded financial situation, says Codacons

Consumer group files complaint against failed Windjet

(ANSA) - Catania, August 21 - Consumer group Codacons filed a complaint for fraudulent insolvency and misappropriation of funds against the recently collapsed Sicilian low-cost carrier Windjet on Tuesday. The group presented the complaint to Sicilian prosecutors stating that "Windjet was aware of their financial situation yet disregarded the rules protecting the consumer and sold non-valid tickets". Italy's civil aviation authority pledged last week to investigate charges that airlines replacing Windjet tickets are charging excessively for re-booking. Thousands of passengers were stranded when the carrier went belly-up two weeks ago, during one of Italy's busiest travel seasons.
