Maximus Air Cargo supports An-12 UAE ban

MAXIMUS Air Cargo has pledged to back the UAE’s recent An-12 ban.

Fathi Buhazza, president and chief executive officer of Maximus, said: “There has been much bad press about Ukrainian and Russian aircraft when actually the problem lies not with the aircraft but with substandard operators who fall short of international safety standards.

“The GCAA (General Civil Aviation Authority) are taking steps with operators who do not meet safety standards and Maximus fully supports this and believes that this firm approach will work.

“We are keen to work with the GCAA to ensure that regional safety standards follow meticulous global standards.”

Maximus’ fleet does not include any An-12s but many of its competitors in the UAE do.
