FAT TO RETURN TO SERVICE AFTER TWO YEAR SUSPENSION

Taiwanese airline Far Eastern Air Transport (FAT), which suspended services for two years due to financial problems, is expected to resume domestic flights as from next month.

The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has approved FAT’s application to resume services, with two of its MD83 planes having completed test flights.

FAT was suspended in May 2008 after filing for bankruptcy protection in February 2008 with debts of more than NT$10 billion (approx $341 million).

Authorities are hopeful the airlines will be able to fly between Taipei and the outlying island county of Kinmen during Lunar New Year to help airlines meet demand. However FAT will only be allowed to re-enter international service if all safety checks are passed. For now, the airline is allowed to operate domestic flights.
