“All commitments due will be honoured,” he said. No reason was given for the decision.
While in a separate statement, Sirika said: “The suspension was strategic and had nothing to do with politics.”

The airline relaunch was announced in July as part of a plan to improve the country’s infrastructure, which has suffered due to decades of neglect and underinvestment. The government maintains that improvement will require private investment.
