Aigle Azur - The French airline Aigle Azur has announced the cancellation of all its flights from tonight without immediate compensation for its customers. In a statement the company said that "The financial situation of the company and the resulting operational difficulties do not make it possible to ensure flights beyond the evening of September 6th”.  After having interrupted the connections to or from Mali, Brazil and Portugal earlier on Thursday, Aigle Azur made the announcement at the end of the day first, to its employees, then to customers. Customers are invited to either contact their insurance provided by their credit card or their travel agency, and failing that to approach the legal representatives to declare their claim.  Aigle Azur has 1,150 employees, including 350 in Algeria.
