Banned airline leaves thousands stranded
Thousands of passengers have been left stranded after air regulators grounded Turkmenistan Airlines.
The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority said flights from Birmingham and London’s Heathrow to Amritsar, and Heathrow to New Delhi – which fly via Ashgabat, Turkmenistan – had been suspended.
The CAA acted after the European Aviation Safety Agency suspended permission for it to fly in the EU.
As well as the UK, the airline flies from Frankfurt and Paris.
