BIS Increases Scope of Temporary Denial Order on Turkish Charter Airline

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) announced today that it has modified its June 6, 2008 Temporary Denial Order (TDO) involving Ankair, an Istanbul, Turkey-based charter airline, to cover all exports or re-exports of items subject to the Export Administration Regulations. BIS indicated that it increased the scope of the TDO based on evidence that Ankair violated the TDO and engaged in and/or is about to engage in or attempt further violations of the EAR involving the re-export of additional U.S. origin aircraft to Iran without U.S. Government authorization.

By way of background, on June 6, 2008, BIS issued an Order, temporarily denying the export privileges for 180 days of Galaxy Aviation Trade Company Ltd., Galaxy's shareholders and Iran Air. The TDO also denied certain export privileges of Ankair, specifically, any transactions involving a Boeing 747 cargo aircraft (tail number TC-AKZ). The Order was issued based on evidence that the parties were attempting to re-export the U.S.-origin Boeing 747 from Turkey to Iran without U.S. Government authorization.

The modified TDO issued by BIS can be found here.
