State air carrier to be set up in Sverdlovsk Region

13 March 2008 (11:18)

It was announced in the course of a meeting chaired by First Deputy Head of Sverdlovsk Region Government Vladimir Molchanov that a regional state-run air carrier dealing in local and regional flights is to be set up in Sverdlovsk Region.

The issue was first brought into the limelight during the Russian Federation Minister of Transport Igor Levitin’s visit to Yekaterinburg.

The future enterprise will probably be based on the currently operating state-run organization that uses seventeen runways and owns a number of aircraft and some premises. The new business is expected to start operating in the summer of 2008.
