Passengers warned as airline suspends flights

Low-cost carrier Cobalt has suspended operations indefinitely and warned passengers booked on its flights not to turn up.
The Cypriot airline, which operates services from Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick, said all flights were being cancelled as of 11.50pm on Wednesday.
It is the latest budget carrier to run into difficulties after Denmark's Primera Air ceased trading earlier this month.Cobalt advised passengers not to go to airports as "no Cobalt flights will operate and no Cobalt staff will be present".It added: "We sincerely apologise once again and would like to thank our very loyal customers for their support over the last two years of Cobalt operations."Cyprus' ministry of transport advised stranded passengers to book a flight home on another airline and keep receipts to be eligible for reimbursement.Transport minister Vassiliki Anastassiadou wrote on Twitter: "Hard times. Our thoughts are close to the staff of Cobalt. At the same time, we (will) do everything possible to minimise the inconvenience of passengers."Passengers reacted with concern, with one writing on Twitter: "There's nothing quite like starting your day frantically trying to replace all your flight bookings!"
