However, both the company and the certificate-issuing authority assure that this will not prevent the aviation newcomer from taking off on time.
“We have already made progress in these matters but the company still does not have the AOC. The certifying commission has not yet taken a decision, either. We have issued certain remarks on certain issues, which they don’t manage to rectify,” Kęstutis Auryla, the head of Lithuania’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), told the daily.
An air carrier must provide proofs of its financial capacity and technical airworthiness in order to obtain the required certificates.
Sandra Meškauskaitė, spokeswoman for Air Lituanica, told the daily that all documents had been submitted and approved. The company could not decide for the Civil Aviation Authority when to issue its answer, she added.
Meanwhile, Auryla said that the CAA had no reproaches as regards the company’s financial figures. The fact that the company had not yet been issued the certificates was mostly related with technical matters, he added.
