UKRAINE Air Alliance (U) has lost its operating certificate, in the wake of a fatal landing accident on October 5 that claimed the lives of five of the eight occupants onboard an Antonov-12 in Lviv city in western Ukraine.

The state aviation administration did not give a specific reason for terminating the certificate, effective from October 5, according to Flight Global.



The tragic incident happened when the aircraft came down short of the runway at Lviv as it prepared to make a refuelling stop en route from Vigo to Istanbul. Unconfirmed reports suggest the aircraft had run out of fuel, reported London's Air Cargo News.



European Union Aviation Safety Agency said third-country operator approval for the carrier has also been withdrawn, according to the agency's newly-updated register of authorised carriers. U operates a fleet of seven An-12s.



Ukrainian regulators have launched a technical assistance programme, in co-operation with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), that aims to improve certification and flight operations oversight within the country.
