Aeroflot redeploys its international network, will launch flights from Sochi to six countries

Aeroflot Russian Airlines Sukhoi Superjet 100-95B RA-89014 (msn 95025) SVO (OSDU). Image: 921776.

Aeroflot Russian Airlines is being forced to realign its international network due to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and western sanctions, especially airspace closures to Russian aircraft.

Aeroflot will now fly from Sochi in southern Russia to six countries and 17 destinations.

The aircraft will be operated by Rossiya.

Using its shorter-range Sukhoi  SuperJet 100s, Aeroflot will operate from Sochi to Armenia (Yerevan), Egypt (Cairo), Israel (Tel Aviv), Kazakhstan (Aktau, Aktobe, Almaty, Atyrau, Nur Sultan), Turkey (Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman, Istanbul) and Uzbekistan (Bukhara, Samarkand, Tashkent, Urgench, Ferghana).

The international flights will connect to hubs in Moscow (Sheremetyevo), St. Petersburg and Krasnoyarsk.

Aeroflot is avoiding using foreign leased Airbus and Boeing aircraft on the routes due to a real fear of seizure.

 

Aeroflot issued this statement:

Aeroflot has opened sales of tickets for direct regular flights from Sochi to Armenia, Egypt, Israel, Kazakhstan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. The flight program is focused on transit passenger traffic and caters to those travelling on routes via Sochi from base airports of the Aeroflot Group airlines in Moscow (Sheremetyevo), Saint-Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk.

Flights from Sochi to 17 destinations will be operated by Rossiya Airlines (a subsidiary of Aeroflot Group) on domestically-produced Superjet 100 aircraft. Up to ten airliners of this type will be based in Sochi to operate the flight program.

Rossiya Airlines resurrects Transaero’s “Siberian Tiger” nose on EI-XLD

Transaero's Siberian Tiger color scheme

Transaero Airlines in June 2015 unveiled at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, the official presentation of the joint project with the Amur Tiger Center of a new “Siberian Tiger” livery on the pictured 447-seat Boeing 747-412 EI-XLN (msn 28029). The special color scheme was designed to “draw attention of the international and the Russian public to the issues of environmental protection and conservation of rare and endangered species.”

The airline continued;

The project, called “Striped Flight”, has acquired the characteristics and features of the tiger with the nose of the aircraft adorned in the image of the head of the Amur tiger.

According to surveys conducted in 2015, the Amur tiger population in Russia in the wild has stabilized at around 510-540 individuals.

In the coming decade, the fate of tigers and the whole natural complex will largely depend on the concerted action of the international community. The airline and the Amur Tiger Center have joined forces under the motto: “Let’s save nature together.”

In flight, Transaero passengers on “Striped flight” will be able to view the documentaries produced by the Center under the “Siberian Tiger” project.

The Amur Tiger Center, located in Moscow and Vladivostok, specializes in the protection of Siberian Tigers.

However, as previously reported, Transaero ended ended all operations at midnight on October 25, 2015 after losing its AOC.

Rossiya Airlines, a subsidiary of Aeroflot, has taken over the Boeing 747-400s formerly operated by Transaero. The carrier has decided to carry on the “Siberian Tiger” campaign on this Boeing 747 (below).

Rossiya Airlines suspends Antonov An-148 scheduled flights

Rossiya Russian Airlines (subsidiary of Aeroflot Russian Airlines) (St. Petersburg) has suspended the operation of  its relatively new six Antonov An-148s from scheduled passenger operations. The new type is more expensive to operate according to ch-aviation quoting company officials. The An-148 is built in the Ukraine. Per Airline Route, the airline operated its last scheduled flight on April 9 from Krasnodar to St. Petersburg. The type was introduced on February 2, 2010 from St. Petersburg to Moscow (Vnukovo).

Aeroflot Group to take control of Rossiya Airlines on March 30

Aeroflot Group (Aeroflot Russian Airlines) (Moscow) will assume full commercial control of Rossiya Airlines (St. Petersburg) on March 30, 2014. According to the group, this step “continues the process of the successful integration of the subsidiaries that Aeroflot acquired from State Corporation Rostec in 2011.”

From March 30, 2014 all flights operated by Rossiya Airlines will be designated by Aeroflot’s IATA code (SU), and the code of Rossiya Airlines (FV) will cease to be used.

The assumption of commercial control marks a key step toward the full integration of Rossiya into Aeroflot Group, and is expected to generate additional revenues through the sale of flights operated by Aeroflot subsidiaries through the Group’s more than 200 interline e-ticket agreements, further strengthening Aeroflot’s financial position.

Rossiya was established in 1992 and was previously owned by the Russian government as a state airline. It is unclear at this time if Rossiya will remain a separate airline under the Aeroflot Group or it will be integrated at some point into Aeroflot Russian Airlines.

Is Aeroflot headed back to being the world’s largest airline again?

Rosavia (Moscow) will not fly as Russia’s second big state airline according to Reuters. The Russian government reversed its previous policy and announced today (February 2) that six airlines which were to due to be merged under the Rosavia name will be privatised this year in order for the assets to be merged into Aeroflot Russian Airlines (Moscow). The government previously wanted to combine bankrupt state aviation assets under the state corporation Russian Technologies and set up a new subsidiary named Rosavia to merge six state airlines, namely Rossiya Russian Airlines, KMV Avia (Kavminvodyavia), Vladivostok Air (Vladivostock Avia), Orenair (Orenburg Airlines), Saratov Airlines and SAT Airlines (Sakhalinskie Aviatrassy) (Sakhalin Airlines) under the Rosavia name and compete against Aeroflot. These airlines are now expected to become history. Is Aeroflot headed back to its Soviet size where it was once the world’s largest airline?
