MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) —— The Aeroflot top management decided to file a lawsuit against the international airport Sheremetyevo to indemnify the damages, which were inflicted on the air company Aeroflot over a electric power breakdown of the terminal D, the Aeroflot Airlines reported on Wednesday.
Aeroflot fully shoulders responsibility for the Wednesday disruption in the operation of the air company and inconveniences for the passengers on the closed joint stock company International Airport Sheremetyevo, which is the owner and the management company of the terminal D, the Aeroflot air company noted.
“An electric power breakdown occurred at 08:53 Moscow time on Wednesday the regional electric power substation, which provides electric power supplies to the airport Sheremetyevo,” Aeroflot reported earlier on Wednesday. The international airport Sheremetyevo failed to put into operation a reserved power generator. As a result the systems, which are controlling the correct check-in, the delivery of luggage, went out of order, and some difficulties emerged in the border controls.
Meanwhile, the airport Sheremetyevo stated that “the electric power outage triggered by the electric power surge at an electric power transformer substation of the Northern Electric Grid company (a subsidiary of the joint stock company MOESK), occurred at 08:50 Moscow time on Wednesday.” Meanwhile, “the airport was urgently put on the reserve electric power sources, but the electric power supplies in the terminal D were disrupted.”
As a result Aeroflot has to delay domestic and international flights over their servicing moved from the terminal D to the terminal E. The press service of the company also reported that the information over the transfer of some flights from one terminal to another “relates only to the departures, the arrivals and their servicing are being made as scheduled at all terminals in the airport, including the terminal D.
