HiSky Company that yesterday announced its launch on the aviation services market denied the accusations made by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Moldova, which said that the company works in the absence of an air operator’s certificate, IPN reports, with reference to a press release of HiSky.
“HiSky is bewildered at the press release issued by the Civil Aviation Authority in the evening of February 20, 2020. We ascertained that the CAA pronounces on aspects that reveal evident non-professionalism and even bad intention. We reiterate that HiSky Company will work on the aviation services market in partnership with the Romanian operator Cobrex Trans that was certified by the Romanian Aviation Authority and the EASA. In other words, the flights under this partnership do not necessitate an air operator’s certificate issued by the CAA of Moldova,” runs the press release.
“We regret that the Civil Aviation Authority adopts positions based on bad intention,” said HiSky Director Iulian Scorpan. He noted that before the launch, he had a meeting at the CAA where he informed that the flights will be performed based on the air operator’s certificate issued by the Romanian authorities. “They familiarized themselves with our announcement and towards the end of 20.02.20 decided to make themselves noticed with a press release that is fully unrelated to the subject. This points once again to their opposition to a successful project like HiSky. I explain: in the case of the partnership with Cobrex Trans, the CAA is not part of the certification process as long as we fly under an AOC issued by the Romanian state that is a member of the EASA,” stated Iulian Scorpan.
The company calls on the CAA and the institutions controlled by this entity to refrain from disseminating distorted information that damage the image of HiSky. If the attacks continue, HiSky reserves the right to resolve these disputes through court.
To the press release, HySky attached a copy of the air operator’s certificate of Cobrex Trans, which confirms that the two companies can operate flights according to the announced timetable. “Cobrex Trans obtained all the flight authorizations in all the European airports,” reads the document.
Yesterday evening, the CAA circulated a press release saying that it issued HiSky with a letter informing it about the refusal to provide an air operator’s certificate. The CAA noted that it asked HiSky to present the documents showing that the company can sell plane tickets in its own name.
