More than 43 thousand VIM-Avia passengers stay in foreign airports
More than 30 flights of the VIM-Avia airline company have been canceled. More than 43,000 passengers from Russia are staying at foreign airports due to the cancellation of flights by the VIM-Avia airline company.
"On early Tuesday, the VIAM-Avia airline company cancelled more than 20 regular flights and 10 charter flights from three Russian cities and six foreign countries: Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus," TASS cited the source as saying.
About 360 tourists from China are staying in Belgium’s Liege due to cancellation of VIM-Avia’s flight to Wuhan, the airport’s press service said.
It emerged on Monday that the Federal Air Transport Agency initiated unscheduled examination of the VIM-Avia air company. According to the agency, substantial delays in the flights were linked to the company’s debts to fueling companies.
The airline company obliged to transport more than 200,000 passengers before the end of this year.
This is the second surge of massive delays in the company’s flights. In May 2017, the carrier started mass flight delays at various airports. The company explained it by late arrivals of the aircraft.
