Saratov Airlines/Ivolga Airlines to shut down on May 31

Airline Color Scheme - Introduced 2013

As previously reported, Saratov Airlines announced on April 28, 2018 it operated its first flight (Saratov-Dalaman) as Ivolga Airlines.

That move, it appears, was not enough to satisfy the Russian regulators.

Rosaviatsia, which put the airline on a temporary AOC, has instructed the airline not to book and or issue tickets for any flights after May 30.

As a result, the carrier is shutting down all operations on May 31. Approximately 1,200 employees will be laid off.
