Ukrainian authorities have revoked the operating certificate of Ukraine Air Alliance, following a fatal landing accident involving an Antonov An-12 in Lviv.
The state aviation administration stated that the order to “terminate” the certificate was effective as of the 5 October.
It has not given a specific reason for the decision, but it comes just after the 4 October accident which killed five of the eight occupants of the An-12.
The aircraft crash down just short of the runway at Lviv as it prepared to make a refuelling stop while en route from Vigo to Istanbul.
Ukrainian regulators have commenced on a technical assistance programme, in co-operation with ICAO, intended to improve certification and flight operations oversight within the country.
