Russian Regulator Suspends 737 Flying Certificates

Russia’s airline regulator has suspended all flying certificates for 737 aircraft operating in the country.

Russia’s airline regulator has suspended all flying certificates for 737 aircraft operating in the country.

The Interstate Regulatory Committee (IRC) said the decision is a result of concerns relating to tail control surfaces that date back to the 2013 crash of a Tatarstan Airlines 737 which killed all 50 people on board.

It said the certificate suspension will remain in place until it receives notification from both Russian airline watchdog Rosaviatsya and the FAA about the safety of the aircraft. In a statement, Boeing said it plans to meet with Russian officials to “understand their concerns”.
