The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine suspended the licenses of UMAir, Baltika and Aeromost Kharkiv on July 25, but said the problems with UMAir were the most serious.
The regulator said a commission had found that UMAir crews worked up to 24-hour shifts for nine days straight with only eight hours to rest. In addition, according to the Aviation Administration, the service dates on some UMAir planes have expired and they are not flight worthy.
On the same day that the State Aviation Administration suspended UMAir`s license, July 25, the Kyiv Economic Court overruled the suspension. (Kyiv Post)
