Russia’s air transport agency, Rosaviatsia, has stripped a regional airline of its license in the latest crackdown on domestic carriers following a plane crash last month that killed most of a major league ice hockey team.
Mordovia Airlines has had its license revoked and freight carrier UTair-Cargo has been banned from using the Antonov An-2 aircraft.
Last week, four airlines were banned from flying.
