Spanish airline LTE suspends services

The Spanish low-cost airline LTE said Friday that it was suspending services because it could not cover the cost of operating.

It added that "it just was not possible to avoid this situation given world events lately."

The company which runs flights from Spain to England, Italy and Saudi Arabia, has 300 employees and a fleet of seven Airbus 320s.
