Dart Airline (Kyiv) has suspended servicing its own flights over low occupancy of planes, the airline has reported.
“This happened around two or three weeks ago,” the airline said.
According to the register of civil planes, as of February 13, Dart airline does not have aircraft. However, Airbus A320-212 plane with UR-CII code, Airbus A321-211 with UR-CQK code, Airbus A320-212 with UR-COF code and MD-83 with UR-CEL code that earlier have been in the airline’s fleet are now serviced by Alanna company.
According to the unified public register of companies and private entrepreneurs the latter has the same register code as Dart LLC had earlier and is undergoing liquidation.
Dart Airline has been operating as a charter airline since 1997. The company operates Bombardier Lear Jet 60, Airbus-320 and Boeing 737-300/500 aircraft.
In February 2017 Ukraine’s State Aviation Service suspended the operation certificate of Dart Airline. The press service of the authority then said that the decision was made as the certificate failed to meet certification requirements. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) temporarily suspended the permit to Dart Airline to fly to the countries of the European Union (EU).
Later, on April 6, 2017 the State Aviation Service renewed the certificate. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
