Aeroflot’s principal shareholders are the federal government (51.17%), Aeroflot Finans (Aeroflot’s subsidiary owing about 5.6% of shares) and the Rostec state corporation (3.55%).
The government is planning to privatise Aeroflot in 2014 by selling about 10% its shares in the second or third quarters of the year. In late July, the government estimated 8-9% of Aeroflot shares at $200-$300 million.
Aeroflot, Russia’s leading airline, transported 20.9 million passengers in 2013. The Aeroflot Group, which includes the company’s subsidiaries, serviced 31.4 million passengers last year.
