The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsiya, reported that Tatarstan Airlines’ Air Operator Certificate will be revoked as of December 31, 2013.

The decision to revoke Tatarstan’s AOC was made due to violations of established norms for flight hours, and failure  to observe the duty and rest schedules of flight crew members. These shortcomings were found during an unscheduled inspection that had been carried out at Tatarstan Airlines following the fatal November 17 accident involving a Boeing 737-500 of the airline.
