30 May 2012 (09:26)

The Greek air carrier Astra Airlines operated its first chartered flight from Yekaterinburg to Saloniki. Kommersant refers to Mouzenidis Travel Director-General as saying that the flight was operated using a one-time permit issued by the Federal Air Transport Agency.

The airline intends to operate about thirty flights from Yekaterinburg to Saloniki this summer.

Rosaviation reported earlier that the air carrier had no permission to operate the said flights because this particular destination was not stated in Greece and Russia’s aviation agreement.
