Court to hear airline's $82 mln lawsuit against construction company
MOSCOW, October 25 - RAPSI. A court will hear on November 10 a $82 million lawsuit filed by KD Avia airline against a construction company, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI) reports from the courtroom.
KD Avia and GS Corporation entered into a contract in 2004, whereby GS Corporation was to construct terminals at Kaliningrad's airport. KD Avia paid for the work, but later argued that the contract was invalid because it was incomplete - neither the subject, nor the contract's terms were agreed upon in the contract. KD Avia sought to recover under the legal theory of unjust enrichment for a period beginning in February 2007, and filed suit with the commercial court in September 2009.
A court already considered the dispute in February, but held against the claimant as the statute of limitations expired. However, the cassation court remanded the case for reconsideration.
The Kaliningrad Region Commercial Court declared KD Avia bankrupt on November 11, 2010.
KD Avia was based in Kaliningrad, Russia. It operated from 2002 until 2009. KD Avia operated scheduled flights within Russia, CIS and Europe from Khabarovo Airport (Kaliningrad).
