Aeroflot Nord Operations Temporarily Restricted – Source

MOSCOW. Sept 23 (Interfax) - Temporary restrictions have been imposed on Aeroflot Nord operations after checks revealed a host of breaches of regulations by the company, a source told Interfax on Tuesday.

"In the future, the airline company may lose its license as serious violations have been found," the source said.

The aviation authorities did not immediately confirm this information.

The Boeing 737 passenger jet which crashed in Perm in the early hours of September 14 was owned by Aeroflot Nord. The air crash claimed 88 lives, including 82 passengers and six crew members.
