Certificates For Russian Airlines Suspended

March 12, 2022 | 6 Comments

The Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority [BCAA] has “provisionally suspended all Certificates of Airworthiness” of the aircraft operating under the “agreement between Bermuda and the Russian Federation.”

A spokesperson said, “International sanctions on the aviation sector have had a significant impact on the ability to sustain safety oversight on Russian operated aircraft on the Bermuda Aircraft Registry.

“The airworthiness system has been restricted to the point that the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority [BCAA] is unable to confidently approve these aircraft as being airworthy.

“Therefore, as of 23:59 UTC on March 12th 2022, the BCAA has provisionally suspended all Certificates of Airworthiness of those aircraft operating under the Article 83bis Agreement between Bermuda and the Russian Federation.

“For any aircraft airborne at 23:59 UTC on March 12th 2022, the provisional suspension is effective immediately upon landing.”

The Government previously confirmed that there are approximately 900 aircraft on the Registry of which approximately 740 are utilized by Russian air operators.

Premier David Burt previously confirmed that the island, in effect, will follow UK sanctions, saying, “In response to the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, many countries including the United Kingdom, have introduced a wide range of sanctions against the Russian Federation.

“Once implemented, UK sanctions are applicable in Bermuda as an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom,” the Premier said, and UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss previously said she is ”working closely with the Overseas Territories to make sure that Putin’s oligarchs have nowhere to hide.”

The UK joins numerous other allies around the world such as the US, Canada, Switzerland and the EU in imposing the sweeping sanctions against Russia following their invasion of Ukraine.

      Is it “following” or is it standing with 80% of the world against invasion and oppression?
