MOSCOW, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Yamal airlines has resumed the operation of its fleet of Boeings-737 liners, grounded for maintenance following the crash of a Boeing-737 of Tatarstan airlines in Kazan late last year, the company’s press office told Itar-Tass.
According to the company, the short-term suspension was needed for maintenance to reduce risk of the elevator’s runaway and/or jam. Due analysis has been carried out, and all aircraft were now in good working condition and in service again, the company whose fleet comprises 3 Boeings 737-400 and 6 Boeings 737-500 added.
Yamal announced suspension of Boeing flights on January 17, 2014 on the basis of flight data retrieved from the Boeing-737-500 VQ-BBN of Tatarstan air carrier, whose flight Domodedovo-Kazan ended in a crash.
Last December Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency Rosaviation recommended checks of all Boeings-737 in all Russian air carriers’ fleets.
