Aeroflot flight SU-289 that was detained in Sri Lanka, has departed for Moscow, Russia.
The flights departure comes in accordance with the order issued by the Colombo Commercial High Court to the Chairman of the Airport and Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) (Private) Limited.
The Colombo Commercial High Court today suspended the enjoining order issued banning the Aeroflot flight from leaving the BIA. The order was issued by judge Harsha Sethunga.
The Attorney General requested the Colombo Commercial High Court to rescind the enjoining order issued on the 2nd of June banning the flight from leaving the BIA.
The Attorney General filing a motion said the matter has inconvenienced passengers, affected the national economy, and has legal implications.
Last week, the Aeroflot flight was prevented from leaving based on an enjoining order over a legal dispute between two private companies.
Russian authorities reacted strongly over the move to prevent the aircraft from leaving BIA.
Russian flag carrier Aeroflot also announced that it was suspending commercial flights between Colombo and Moscow.
The Foreign Ministry meanwhile maintained that the issue is between two private entities.
