Russia grounds six airlinesSeptember 26th, 2011 - 6:05 pm ICT by IANS
Moscow, Sep 26 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Russia’s aviation watchdog said Monday it has annulled the licenses of three airlines and suspended three others after a comprehensive check initiated in the wake of a recent plane crash that wiped out an entire ice hockey team.
The Federal Air Transport Agency revoked the licenses of Ilin Airline, the Ulyanovsk Higher Civil Aviation School airline and YAK-Servis, the owner of the Yak-42 airliner which crashed near Yaroslavl Sep 7, killing the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl professional ice hockey team.
The agency also suspended the licenses of Avis-Amur, Jetalliance East and the Beriev Aircraft Company, it said in a statement.
The watchdog said the check might result in the revocation of licenses of 30 Russian mid-sized airlines which do not comply with financial and safety requirements.
