The Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) has proposed the Ministry of Transport withdraw an aviation operation license earlier granted to Bluesky Air JSC.
CAAV just reviewed aviation licenses issued to local enterprises and submitted a report to the ministry.
According to the report, there are four airlines in Vietnam having obtained the 'general aviation service business' license, namely Vietstar Airlines, Green Planet Airways, Vietnam Helicopters, and Hai Au Aviation.
The carrier Bluesky Air won the same license almost 10 years ago, but it has yet to acquire the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) so far.
As stipulated in Decree 89/2019, a business will have its license withdrawn if it fails to obtain an AOC within the following three years.
In addition, CAAV has given a warning against Globaltrans Air, which has yet to win an AOC after being granted an aviation operation license in April 2018.
The deadline for Globaltrans Air is April 1, 2021, CAAV said.
Besides the 'general aviation service business' authorization, the ministry has granted the discrete 'air transport service business' license to five enterprises, namely Vietnam Airlines, Pacific Airlines (formerly known as Jetstar Pacific Airlines), Vietjet Air, Bamboo Airways, and Vietnam Helicopters.
