Russia's Federal Air Navigation Authority will postpone a threatened suspension
Russia's Federal Air Navigation Authority will postpone a threatened suspension of flights by nine regional air companies due to be introduced October 17 to allow passengers, who have already paid for tickets, to travel.

"Airlines threatened with a suspension to services starting on October 17 will be given an opportunity to carry out flights," the service said on Thursday adding it was guided by "social responsibility."

The debts owned by the air companies, which include airlines, aircraft-building companies and an air school, range from 19 million rubles ($738,000) to 1,404 rubles ($54).

The list of the penalized companies includes Dalavia, a state-owned carrier that suspended ticket sales in September after its bank accounts were frozen over a debt of more than 240 million rubles ($9.5 million).

Another airline, Omskavia, was part of the AiRUnion alliance that was hit by a cash crisis leading to flight delays across Russia in August. The alliance broke up after the government decided to transfer its stakes in AiRUnion to the state-run Russian Technology Corporation and use them to form a new carrier.

Moscow-based Interavia has come under the focus of the Federal Air Transport Agency over repeated flight delays at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport. Media said the delays were caused by the airline's debt to fuel companies. The regulator has launched an investigation, saying the independent airline could have its license revoked.
