The FANair airline and the tail numbers of the two aircraft that make up the airline’s fleet were no longer in the Ukrainian Register of Civil Aircraft as of November 29, 2018. The Antonov state aircraft manufacturing enterprise signed a memorandum on delivery of two An-158 aircraft to this airline in October.
An Airbus A320-212 aircraft manufactured in 1994 (tail number UR-CQM) and an Airbus A321-211 aircraft manufactured in 2004 (tail number UR-CRI) are listed in the name of the FANair airline, the CFTS portal reports. Currently, there is no mention of these aircraft in the state register. However, according to data from planespotters.net, the Airbus A321-211 has been in the fleet of ScanBlu Airlines, a small Swedish airline that began operations in 2018, since November.
As the CFTS portal reported, the FANair airline was established in March this year. FANair was linked to the Alanna (formerly Dart) and Khors airlines. The airline was the legal successor of Camus Air. FANair was owned by Viktor Streletskyi and Serhii Sinchenko, who were either owners or directors of several other legal entities (LLC Vinnytsia Crystals, JSC Leznykovskyi quarry, and others).
Vasyl Pustovalov was listed as the director of FANair. He also headed Aviatrans K, which lost its air operator's certificate in 2013. Reports in the mass media have linked this carrier to the Khors airline.
According to Antonov, the memorandum that was signed in October stipulated that the airline was to receive two 97-seat An-158 aircraft six months after activation of a financial leasing contract.
