Russia imposes restrictions on international flights of Yakutia Airlines over safety issues
30 October 2018

The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) has imposed restrictions on international flights of Yakutia Airlines over safety issues.

The reason for the introduction of the restriction was the violations identified during recent inspections, including incorrect information about the implementation of the airworthiness directives on the Boeing 737-800 aircraft and its further operation without maintenance; and failure to eliminate in time the malfunctions identified on the aircraft.

The agency states that the maintenance issues have caused long and numerous delays on international and domestic routes.

From November 5, the company is prohibited from flying on international airlines and will remain in force until the elimination of all identified deficiencies.

The air fleet of Yakutia Airlines consists of 5 Boeing 737-800’s, 6 Antonov An-24RV’s, 3 DHC-8-311’s and 4 Sukhoi Superjets.
