Aequo lawyers won a lawsuit in Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeal representing leading British Airline against the State Aviation Service (CAA) to declare illegal and invalidate resolutions on imposition of fines for violations in the field of civil aviation. The resolutions had been taken by the CAA for allegedly committed flights to the restricted zone UKP-35 (Crimea peninsula).
Aequo lawyers have proved in the court that the airline did not carry out flights to Crimea and the resolutions were taken erroneously. The airline's claim was satisfied by the Circuit Administrative Court of Kyiv city in full.
Disagreeing with the decision of the first-instance court, the CAA filed an appeal. However, the Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeal refused to satisfy the appellate claim and upheld in full the decision of the Circuit Administrative Court of Kyiv city as legitimate.
The interests of the airline in the courts were represented by partner Oleksandr Mamunya and attorney-at-law Oleksandr Tereshchenko.
