The Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) has retracted its decision to suspend flying certificates for the Boeing 737, said Nataliya Fileva, co-owner of Russia’s S7 Airlines, who took part in a meeting of officials in Moscow on Friday.
“The IAC has recalled its letter,” Fileva told reporters after the meeting.
On Thursday, the IAC, Russia’s airline regulator, said it was suspending flying certificates for Boeing 737s currently in use in the country until it receives notification that the planes are safe to fly. Its decision did not stop flights. (Reporting by Gleb Stolyarov; writing by Polina Devitt; editing by Jason Bush)
