The court included the claims of tour operator in the register of the airline’s creditors in the amount of ~ 2.5 billion rubles.
The Arbitration Court of the North-Western District today put an end to the dispute over the inclusion of the claims of tour operator Biblio Globus in the register of Transaero airline’s creditors in the amount of ~ 2.4 billion rubles. All judicial instances, despite active resistance of other participants in the airline’s bankruptcy proceedings, unanimously recognized the claims as founded.
Biblio-Globus, an agent for the sale of tickets for the air carrier’s flights (about 150 routes), demanded to refund the advance payment for the unperformed flights by Transaero due to the withdrawal of the latter’s air transport licence. The most difficult was to justify the size of the claim: lawyers of Pavlova & Partners proved in court the performance of all the flights by Transaero during the period of the Agency Agreement (these documents amounted to 49 volumes of the case).
The tour operator throughout the dispute was represented by specialists of Pavlova & Partners headed by Sergei Levichev , Head of Bankruptcy Practice.
