Ernest Airlines from January 11 suspended all flights over the suspension of its license, the airline has reported on its website.
“Following the provision of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) of 29 December 2019 regarding the temporary suspension of our operating license, we find ourselves unable to operate flights as of 11.01.2020,” the airline said in a press release.
Ernest Airlines said that the license can be restored following the demonstration by Ernest S.p.A. to be in possession of the requirements prescribed by the current legislation on the matter and to obtain the revocation of the provision issued by ENAC.
“We have activated all the actions aimed at obtaining the revocation of the same provision, and we need time to provide all the necessary evidence as per Regulation (EC) n.1008 of 2008 to demonstrate our financial sustainability necessary for the resumption of our operation. We know that nor a simple apology, or just the reimbursement of the ticket, will be enough to remedy the problems caused, but I can assure you, that we all at Ernest Airlines are doing our best to assist all our passengers that have experienced delays or cancellations in this difficult moment,” the airline said.
The Lviv International Airport also posted information on the cancellation of the Rome-Lviv-Rome flight ERN237/238 on its Facebook page.
Earlier Ernest Airlines said that the airline blocked sales of transport contracts for all flights departing from January 13, 2020 over the suspension of the airline’s operating license.
