Russian lowcoster Pobeda ordered to resume weapon transportation
MOSCOW, April 12 (RAPSI) - Moscow’s Sherbinsky District Court on Friday granted a lawsuit lodged by the Moscow transregional transport prosecutor's office and ordered Pobeda airline to resume weapon carriage, RAPSI reports from the courtroom.
The court obliged the lowcoster to bring the rules of firearm transportation in line with the Federal Aviation Regulations.
According to case papers, starting January 1, 2018, Pobeda stopped providing services of transporting firearms and ammunition. Prosecutors ask the court to declare the imposed weapon carriage ban illegal.
Earlier, the Moscow transregional transport prosecutor's office made a protest against the ban. However, the airline failed to rectify violations discovered thereby prompting prosecutors to turn to court.
Currently, one more lawsuit of the Moscow transregional transport prosecutor's office against Pobeda is pending in the Sherbinsky District Court. The plaintiff demands to declare the air carrier’s decision on paid registration for clients established illegal.
