Russian Federation comments on the court decision on debt recovery from Tajik Air

The Moscow Arbitration Court decided that Tajik Air has to pay more than half a million US dollars to the State Air Traffic Management Corporation, Russia.

The State Air Traffic Management Corporation of Russia expects Tajik Air to pay off over US $ 550,000 in debt, the Corporation’s Press Service told Sputnik Tajikistan.

On July 11, 2019, the Moscow Arbitration Court announced a decision on the recovery of debt for air navigation services in the amount of US $ 554.827 from the Tajik Air OJSC in favour of the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency.

The decision shall enter into force on August 11, 2019, if it is not appealed.

The Corporation explained that the Federal Air Transport Agency is delegating authority to provide this service to the State Air Traffic Management Corporation of Russia. Accordingly, the State Corporation charges a fee for the provision of air navigation services to users of airspace.

The Corporation noted that at present, Tajik Air’s debt has not been repaid.

Recall that since January 2019, Tajik Air has not operated flights. The air carrier suspended operations due to financial problems, sending employees on unpaid leave.

However, on July 26, the air company resumed its flights and made a flight to Jeddah, sending 270 Tajik pilgrims for their hajj.
