East Air (EG, Dushanbe) suspended operations on October 6 after the Tajikistan General Authority of Civil Aviation revoked the carrier's Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) citing “certification” issues.

Prior to its suspension, the Tajik carrier had operated five A320-200s, one B737-300 (on lease to Eritrean Airlines (B8, Asmara)), and one B737-400, on flights to Russia and Kazakhstan.
