Aeroflot announces that Russia’s Federal Aviation Agency has granted Pobeda, the low-cost carrier subsidiary of Aeroflot Group, an operator’s certificate and air transportation licence.
Under Russian legislation the award of this documentation means that Pobeda was able to launch ticket sales from 11 November.
The carrier will fly daily from Moscow to Volgograd, Samara, Ekaterinburg, Perm, Tyumen and Belgorod. Pobeda will make its maiden flight on 1 December from terminal A of Vnukovo international airport in Moscow.
The new airline’s fleet will comprise new narrow-body Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, which can carry up to 189 passengers. As new aircraft join the fleet, flight frequency will increase and Pobeda will launch connections to new destinations.
