Swiss air-control company Skyguide which wrecked Russian aircraft will not be reformed

Reform of the Swiss air-control company Skyguide which wrecked a Russian airliner with 71 people on board it on July 2nd "is not at issue now" but personnel reshuffles are possible. In a RIA Novosti interview representative of the Swiss Federal Department (Ministry) of Transport Catherine Bellini said that personnel changes in the administrative council and personnel of Skyguide company could be made on the basis of intermediate conclusions of an independent foreign expert examination of the system of control of air traffic in Switzerland's air space.

As is known, precisely this service guided two aircraft - a Russian passenger airplane Tu-154 and a Boeing freight airplane - into crossing courses which resulted in the collision of the aircraft in the sky over Germany on July 2nd. The investigation revealed hosts of defects and errors in the work of the Skyguide air-control company.

Bellini confirmed that independent foreign experts will carry out a full-scale investigation into the whole complex of issues of air traffic control in Switzerland.
