March 2011: Israel’s Civil Aviation Authority is revoking the operating license of Sun D'Or International Airlines (ERO) as of April 1, owing to noncompliance with international aviation standards.
(ERO) is a wholly subsidiary of El Al Israel Airlines (ELA) and operates to mainly holiday destinations in Europe using three 757-200s. It was established in 1977 as "El Al Charter Services" and re-branded as "Sun D'Or" in 1981. “Sun D'Or is currently operating without a full administrative and operational framework, as required of every other airline and is relying fully on the infrastructure of parent company El Al (ELA),” the (CAA) said. It added that it had informed the airline over a year ago that it failed to meet aviation standards and that it tried to “repair the faults, but the (CAA) remained unconvinced.” Apparently, the decision follows discussions with delegations from the European Commission (EC), which expressed “reservations about the company's operations” and considered placing operating restrictions on its flights.
