Turkish regional carrier Borajet is suspending flights due to shortage of aircraft due to technical issues, but aims to resume flights after re-organising its fleet.

The Embraer 190/195 operator carried out its last flight prior to the suspension on 23 April.

"Borajet has 10 aircraft in the fleet, but we could not operate six of them because of [a lack of] spare parts. We could not fly our schedule with [only] four aircraft," says an airline spokesman.

In a statement the airline says owing to the time need to eliminate the technical issues, it has decided to suspend operations during this period.

"Borajet will re-organise and will restart operations next year," says the spokesman.

The airline also has debts to airport operators, fuel and handling companies. SBK Holding, which acquired Borajet at the end of 2016, plans to pay them during the re-organisation period.

Passengers booked on Borajet until June 2017 will be carried by Anadolu Jet in the meantime.

Borajet last year agreed to lease three Embraer E190-E2s and two E195-E2s from Dublin-based AerCap for delivery from 2018.
