RosTransNadzor bans flights in Uktus Airport

RosTransNadzor (the transport surveillance agency) banned the operation of any flights to or from Uktus Airport because Second Sverdlovsk Aviation Company has no aviation security compliance certificate.

The monitoring of aviation security conditions by Ural Federal District division of Administration for State Transport Supervision and Transport Security revealed that Uktus Airport (Second Sverdlovsk Aviation Company)’s aviation security compliance certificate had expired.

Under Article 8 of Russia’s Air Code, legal entities handling the provision of aviation security must undergo certification procedures. This is why operating without an aviation security compliance certificate is a direct violation of the Russian Federation laws as well as a threat to the life and health of passengers and to the security of the state.

All this considered, Ural Federal District division of Administration for State Transport Supervision and Transport Security sent its decree to Second Sverdlovsk Aviation Company forbidding it to operate any flights to or from Uktus Airport starting April 14, 2012 and until the violation has been taken care of.
