MOSCOW, December 9. /TASS/. Russia’s low-cost airline Pobeda plans to boost its passenger traffic to 5 mln people in 2017, CEO Andrei Kalmykov said in an interview aired by the Rossiya-24 TV news channel on Friday.
Earlier it was reported that as of December 1, 2016 the company had carried 4 mln passengers since the beginning of the year, and the plan was to carry 4.2 mln people by the end of the year, a 30% increase compared with 2015.
According to Kalmykov, the company "will carry at least 5 mln passengers by the end of 2017, which is particularly related to the fleet’s expansion."
Pobeda is a part of Aeroflot Group and operates on a classic low-cost carrier (LCC) model. The company’s fleet is formed by Boeing 737-800 Next-Generation (NG).
