MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russian Aeroflot Airlines’ low cost company will operate under the brand name Pobeda, a source in the Aeroflot group told TASS on Tuesday.
“This brand will be promoted, with the company’s planes bearing its logo. Its website pobeda.aero will be launched soon,” the source said, adding that Byudzhetny Perevozchik, Aeroflot’s new low-cost affiliate, would be the airline’s legal entity.
Earlier on Tuesday, Byudzhetny Perevozchik announced the start of ticket sales from November 1. The flights will start from November 17 from Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport. According to the company's website, a ticket will cost from $23.82. The price does not envision additional fees.
Byudzhetny Perevozchik officially applied to the Federal Air Transport Agency for an air operator certificate in early October. The fleet of the new company has Boeing-737-800 Next Generation (NG) planes, which will fly from Moscow to Belgorod and Volgograd in the European part of Russia, to Kazan and Samara on the Volga River, to Yekaterinburg and Ufa in the Urals Federal District, and to the Siberian cities of Tyumen and Surgut.
Byudzhetny Perevozchik was established by Aeroflot in mid-September to replace another low cost affiliate Dobrolyot, which suspended its flights from August 4 in the wake of European Union’s sanctions that prompted several European counteragents to annul leasing, maintenance and insurance contracts, and deny navigation information.
