The former managing director of the company’s sales and marketing division of the most recent Icelandic airline Play Bogi Guðmundsson asked Reykjavík District Court to bankrupt the airline, Frettablaðið reports with confirmation of Play CEO Arnar Már Magnússon.
Arnar says that the company’s auditor has confirmed the company’s viability and that the company can meet the obligations it has undertaken.
“We worked closely together to set up PLAY and put a lot of effort into working in the dark. However, it became clear in the run-up to the new shareholders joining the company that Bogi would no longer be associated with PLAY. Bogi, however, has not agreed with the fact that his plans did not materialize. Bogi’s salary has been settled in addition to the notice period, but he wants more and this demand is part of that. It is therefore painful that Bogi should try to break a leg for his former teammates with demands that are taken out of thin air“, said Arnar Már Magnússon.
According to Magnússon, Play now has 36 employees, and all getting ready for the first flight. “We are just waiting for the disease control to be relaxed and for us to be able to serve our customers on the basis of fair rules of the game”, – said Arnar Már Magnússon.
