MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. Negotiations on carriage of Transaero’s passengers by aircraft of Aeroflot, S7, Ural Airlines and Taimyr have not yet resulted in anything, a source close to the progress in talks told TASS on Thursday.
"The Ministry of Transport and the Federal Air Transport Agency held talks with various airlines. Further to Aeroflot, these are S7, Ural Airlines and Taimyr, but negotiations have not yet culminated in anything. This was a tentative talk. Everything will depend on the decision to be made by the government," the source said.
Aeroflot that daily spends about 200 mln rubles ($ 3 mln) to support Transaero operations will stop paying for refueling of Transaero’s aircraft on October 2, the source said. The air carrier has already sent notifications to airports.
TASS reported earlier Aeroflot’s Board of Directors approved the acquisition of 75% plus 1 share in the distressed Transaero airline. Aeroflot established operational control over Transaero from September 7.
