Ernest Airlines air company suspends the ticket sale for all flights, starting from January 13, 2020. The company's license was aborted by ENAC, Italy's national government for civilian aviation. This is mentioned on Ernest's website.
The ticket sale will resume as soon as ENAC publicly cancels its decision.
"The license can be restored following the demonstration by Ernest S.p.A. to be in possession of the requirements prescribed by the current legislation on the matter and to obtain the revocation of the provision issued by ENAC. Our company is taking all the necessary actions aimed at obtaining the revocation of the same provision. In the meantime, in compliance with the provisions of the Authority, sales of transport contracts have been blocked for all flights departing from January 13th. We will update you as soon as there will be more news on this regard", the message said.
