NOVOSIBIRSK, October 31 - RAPSI. A Moscow court will hear on November 14 lawsuits to recover from the Continent airline $168,650 in wage arrears owed to its employees in Siberia, RIA Novosti was told in court on Monday.
The airline was established in 2007. It conducted regular and charter flights on Tu-154 planes.
Continent ceased its flights on July 29, 2011 due to debts to Russian airports worth $1.06 million. The Federal Agency for Air Transport nullified its air operator's certificate as a result. Several hundred people incurred damages following the cancellation of the flights.
The Transport Prosecutor's Office has submitted to court 156 lawsuits in the interests of the employees of the airline's Krasnodar subsidiary.
