February 14 - Polet Airlines has denied reports in the international media that charter rates for the AN-124 freighter are set to increase following the grounding of two of its aircraft.

Polet has stated that information claiming a court decision has gone ahead to ground its AN-124s is incorrect.

The airline has said that it is taking measures to cancel the latest Moscow Arbitration Court decision to ground the aircraft, and an appeal has been sent.

Polet could provide no further information but an official statement from the company is expected to be issued at a later date.
