All Skybus Airlines Inc. flights are back in business after damage to two planes in the discount airline’s fleet sparked cancellations for more than 1,000 travelers during the holiday.
Problems surfaced Christmas Day when the Columbus-based company cut its seven-plane fleet down to five after one airliner’s rear door was damaged when stairs were being set in place, Skybus spokesman Bob Tenenbaum said. A second plane’s fuselage was damaged while on the ground, an event whose cause is still unknown. The door damage was repaired in Columbus while the second plane was flown to Alabama for repairs and returned before Thursday morning.
