June 2008: MNG Technic (IST) reached agreement with Nordic Airways (NOE) to provide "C" checks on the carrier's MD-81. The work is scheduled to begin July 6 at Istanbul Ataturk.
January 2009: Sweden's newly-formed transport authority has revoked the air operating certificate (AOC) (license) of carrier Nordic Airways (NOE) after the company ran into financial problems. (NOE) has previously conducted flights for such airlines as Air Berlin (BER), Spanair (SPP) and Germanwings (RFG), and its activities had included performing services to cities in Iraq.
But the Swedish authority Transport Styrelsen - established on 1 January and charged with regulating civil aviation - says it has ordered (NOE)'s grounding over its economic situation. "The company may not continue to fly," says the authority, citing European Union (EU) conditions for holding an operating license.
It says (NOE) has had financial difficulties "for some time" and points out that (NOE) filed for restructuring last October. Later that month, Swedish authorities gave the airline a temporary operating license, valid until 15 February this year. "Since then Stockholm's district court has rejected the company's request for an extension of this restructuring," says Transport Styrelsen.
"(NOE)'s re-organization has therefore ceased and we consider that the company cannot fulfill its commitments and obligations towards its passengers."
