Azman Air suspends operations again

Azman Air (Azman Air Services Limited) has once again suspended operations reportedly due to a lack of serviceable aircraft according to Vanguard.

Previously the airline suspended operations in June due to a shortage of aircraft.

Staff are reportedly being placed on leave.

The struggling airline will also probably lose its AOC by the end of this month if it is unable to resume operations.

Recently the airline was operating a Boeing 737-500 (5N-AIS) and an Airbus A340-600 (5N-AAM) (below) mostly on Hajj charter flights to Saudi Arabia.
