The only airline providing direct flights to Crimea and Sochi ‘I fly’, may terminate their flights starting from October 1, due to the expiration of the license, reports "360" TV channel.

In that case, those wishing to travel to the peninsula, it will have to transfer in Moscow. The license is terminated due to the insufficient funding of the company.

“As of the III-IV quarter of last year the airline was in the fourth group of financial stability. The second complaint showed that the two aircrafts they had were not enough. Once the complaint was announced the airline got the third plane. It was in Moscow ready to be put into operation,” said the Head of the Federal Tourism Agency Oleg Safonov.

Following the license termination, tour operators will look for a replacement for ‘I fly’.
