Skybus Ceases Operations Effective April 4, 2008

Airline Will Complete April 4th Schedule, Advises Customers to Contact Credit Card Companies to Seek Refunds

April 4, 2008

Richmond International Airport, VA, (April 4, 2008): Richmond International Airport has become aware this evening that Skybus Airlines, providing nonstop service between Richmond and Columbus, OH, since May 2007, will cease all operations as of Saturday, April 5, 2008. A statement on the airline's website at www.skybus.com reads as follows:

Skybus Airlines will cease all operations effective Saturday, April 5.

Skybus struggled to overcome the combination of rising jet fuel costs and a slowing economic environment. These two issues proved to be insurmountable for a new carrier.

We deeply regret the impact this decision will have on our employees and their families, customers, vendors, suppliers, airport officials and others in the cities in which we have operated. Our financial condition is such that our Board of Directors felt it had no choice but to cease operations.

Passengers holding reservations for Skybus flights scheduled to depart on or after Saturday, April 5, 2008 should contact their credit card companies to arrange to apply for a refund. More information for customers and others will be made available on the Skybus web site (www.skybus.com) as it becomes available.

All flights for Friday, April 4 will be completed. Passengers holding reservations on flights for Friday, April 4 should check in for their flight at a Skybus kiosk at the airport instead of the Skybus website.

The airport will provide additional comment as more information becomes available.
