The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) decided to limit the validity of Saratov Airlines’ Air Operator Certificate (AOC) until April 27, 2018 over safety issues.

The authorities conducted an audit of the airline’s operations following the February 11 fatal accident of one of the company’s Antonov An-148 aircraft.

Violations and inconsistencies were revealed in the airline’s activities, causing the company to be put on notice. All comments must be addressed before April 27.

Rosaviatsiya also sent a directive to the airline to suspend flights of their An-148 aircraft until the remarks and inconsistencies are fully addressed.
