Domodedovo airport challenges transport watchdog's security order
MOSCOW, October 26 - RAPSI, Sergei Feklyunin. A commercial court will hold on November 3 a preliminary hearing of Domodedovo airport's application to reverse the transport watchdog's order obliging airport companies to screen all the individuals entering the terminal, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).
The order was issued after a terrorist attack at the airport in January.
The session scheduled for October 25 was adjourned due to the absence of the Federal Service for Supervision of Transport, which had not been duly notified.
This is the second round of litigation over Domodedovo security issues.
A January 27 order made the airport categorize its facilities and transport in terms of their vulnerability and develop a transport security plan.
A terrorist bomb went off at the airport on January 24. It killed 37. Over 100 were injured.
