Air Moldova was stripped of its license

Moldova’s Civil Aviation Authority has revoked Air Moldova’s aviation operator (AO) certificate, the authority said in a press release.

“The revocation of the certificate stipulates that Air Moldova no longer has the status of an air operator, being deprived of the right to perform commercial flights (air transportation),” the press service said.

At the meeting of the Certification Commission, which took place on February 20, it was found that the air operator Air Moldova, which has been in the process of accelerated restructuring for more than half a year, has not presented any evidence confirming the elimination of non-compliances within the established period, does not have any operating aircraft and does not meet the minimum requirements for obtaining the AO certificate.

Earlier, the Civil Aviation Authority had temporarily suspended the AO certificate for six months, providing the maximum period stipulated in the Air Code to identify an aircraft that can be used for air transportation.


After the expiration of the six months, by the provisions of Article 15 of the Air Code, due to the absence of at least one aircraft with a valid airworthiness certificate, the revocation of the certificate was inevitable.

“Air Moldova will be officially notified about the revocation of the operator’s certificate. Later, if the company wants to resume flights, it can initiate a new certification process by national regulations,” the Civil Aviation Authority said.
