On April 19, Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency imposed a restriction on the Air Operator Certificate of Chechnya-based Grozny Avia airline.

Grozny Avia is now banned from operating international flights. The FATA clarifies that the action was taken following a request from the airline itself.

The only flights to destinations outside Russia in Grozny Avia’s schedule were from Voronezh and Kursk to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.

The carrier operates nine Russian-built Yakovlev Yak-42D aircraft, which were manufactured in the late-1980s and early-1990s.

At the end of 2015, Grozny Avia closed the list of Russia’s top-35 airlines: it served 135,100 passengers, a 23.5% decline from the previous year. It did not place in the rating in the first months of 2016.
