RAK Airways probe extended by 6 months
Ras Al Khaimah, July 27, 2014
The investigation into the sudden suspension of former Ras Al Khaimah national carrier RAK Airways’ operations on January 1 of this year, has been extended by six months after the initial three-month time frame lapsed, said a report.
The probe, termed ‘reconstruction committee,’ will deliver its findings to Shaikh Salem Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, chairman of RAK’s Department of Civil Aviation, at the end of the year, said the Gulf News report.
The committee is headed by RAK Airport chief executive Mohammad Qazi.
The committee is also looking at what debt is owed by the former airline and if anything is owed to it.
It has recruited a law firm and accountancy firm to ensure the investigation is objective and is a third of the way through after collating data on the airline, the report added.
