The Moldovan State Administration of Civil Aviation (ASAC) issued an order, under which it will further deny the approval of contracts on leasing airplanes registered in Moldova for flights in the states of high-risk. The leasing contracts should include the following special clause: the air company registered in Moldova will not conduct flights to the states, in which the air space is not effectively controlled by the civil aviatic authorities, as well as in the high-risk zones (zones in which the international insurance organizations do not cover the operating risk).
Moreover, the ASAC recommended the air companies to cease flights to the countries the air space of which is not effectively controlled in line with the international rules and standards by the civil aviatic authorities, and in the zones with increased risk. The following countries are named in the ASAC`s press release: Burundi, D.R.Congo, Eritreea, Etiopia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Afganistan, Yemen, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Iran, Iraq. (Moldpres, ASAC)
