MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) —— The Avianova small airline company, which might quit air transportation altogether because of the lack of financing, has been asked to fulfill its obligations to passengers itself, rather than at the expense of tax payers, Chief of the Federal Air Transport Agency Alexander Neradko told journalists on Monday.
“Avianova and its shareholders should transport passengers at their own expense, rather than at tax payers’ expense," Neradko stressed.
The company has sold 67,834 air tickets for its flights scheduled for October 3-29.
Meanwhile, Sheremetyevo airport has organized an operational headquarters to service Avianova passengers. The headquarters were opened in the office of the Avianova Company at B terminal of the airport, Sheremetyevo airport announced on Monday.
On Sunday Sheremetyevo airport sent telegrams to the Avianova Company, demanding explanations why it has stopped air ticket sale beginning from October 3 and asked to confirm the implementation of the summer flight schedule and inform in the shortest possible time about Avianova's plans for winter flights.
Avianova has not responded to the telegram and provided no information yet.
Avianova is a low budget airline which might stop flights altogether because of the absence of money, First Deputy Director General of the company Konstantin Teterin told the Vedomosti newspaper. The Avianova Company is undergoing the most severe liquidity crisis. Financial breakdowns were provoked by a conflict between its shareholders A-1 and the Indigo Partners group. Avianova has sent no official notification to the Federal Air Transport Agency yet, Teterin said.
