Later on the air company has come forth with explanations thus willing to start improvement process. In early January, AeroSvit's bankruptcy led to the cancellation of a number of flights both in the territory of Turkey and out of its borders. Currently the Airlines flights are being delayed all over the world which resulted in accumulation of hundreds of passengers at airports.
