Air Moldova has suspended flights from 21 to 25 April 2023 to financial difficulties. The company cited financial problems and a lack of funds to pay for fuel and services as the reason for the suspension.
Financial Difficulties Mean Air Moldova Has Suspended Flights
Air Moldova has faced financial difficulties for several years and has been trying to restructure its debts and improve its financial position. The pandemic and the resulting travel restrictions have had a significant impact on the airline’s financial situation. Air Moldova operates flights to several destinations in Europe and Asia, including Italy, Russia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
The suspension of Air Moldova’s flights is likely to have a significant impact on the country’s economy, as the airline is one of the largest employers in the aviation sector. The government has expressed its concern about the situation and is working with the airline to find a solution.
