Message to U.S. Citizens: Air Serv Announcement
October 30, 2011
Air Serv Ltd., a wholly-owned Uganda-based commercial subsidiary of Air Serv International, is in the process of obtaining the necessary air operator certificates and registration for the aircrafts that it currently operates in Chad. As this calls into question the safety of Air Serv aircrafts, the U.S. Embassy-N’Djamena is precluding its personnel from traveling on Air Serv-operated airplanes within Chad.
