The company issued this statement:
This is to inform that Eznis Airways LLC is stopping its operation from May 22nd for an uncertain period of time due to the financial difficulties and the current situation at the airline industry. Eznis Airways LLC is a national airline that had been operating since 2006, constantly and reliably carrying thousands of passengers
We thank everyone who chose our airline, our regular passengers, our partners and our suppliers, for cooperation and support.
The management of the company and the shareholders had done everything during the last two years to survive, to keep positions of our employees and most importantly, to serve the public, but they cannot subsidize the financial losses any longer.
We bring our apologies for all our customers, passengers, employees, engineers, flight operation staff and the crew.
We wish you all the best in your future.
