ENAC has announced it will suspend the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) of Ernest Airlines on January 13, 2020. The agency did not comment on the reason for the suspension.
The airline has stated it hopes to restore operations as soon as possible.
The airline issued this statement:
Dear passengers, unfortunately, we must temporarily close the sales of our flights departing from January 13, 2020, as the National Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) has disposed a suspension of our operating license starting January 13, 2020. The flights will be restored on the site as soon as the revocation of this provision is published.
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.
Our company is taking all the necessary actions aimed at obtaining the revocation of the same provision. In the meantime, in compliance with the provisions of the Authority, sales of transport contracts have been blocked for all flights departing from January 13, 2020.
We will update you as soon as there will be more news on this regard.
