Moskovia Airlines AOC suspended

Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, has suspended Moskovia Airlines’s air operator’s certificate (AOC), with effect from August 29th, after CEO Mikhail Alexeev revealed the carrier could no longer operate flights due to ongoing financial issues.

Rosaviatsia banned ticket sales for the airline after July 29th.

In August, Moskovia decreased its number of scheduled flights to a single destination, Moscow-Tivat. CEO Alexeev had previously stated he hoped the airline would return to full operation by the end of the year.

The Zhukovsky, Moscow-based carrier was founded in 1994. Its fleet included three Sukhoi Superjet 100s, one B737 and two cargo-only Antonov An-12s.
