KAZAN, December 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Tatarstan Airlines will cease to exist after its latest chief, Aksan Giniyatullin, resigned on Wednesday. The new head of the enterprise will hold the post temporarily, until he hands over the administration to the new owner, Ak Bars Aero holding, a source in the airline told Itar-Tass.
“Giniyatullin accepted the resignation at the conference of Rosaviatsia [Federal Air Transport Agency] in Kazan on Wednesday over a Boeing crash on November 17, which took the toll of 50 lives, passengers and crew, Gulnaz Minnikhanova, press secretary of Tatarstan Airlines, explained,
According to preliminary plans, either of the two deputy heads of the company - Valery Sevryukov, responsible for security, or technology director Vitaly Knyazev - might become acting airline chief. The future chief should hand over the administration to Ak Bars Aero holding as soon as possible,
The holding decided to accept all the aircraft except for the last Boeing, that is, two A-319 aircraft, two A-319-100 aircraft, 12 Cessna 208B planes and two Tu-154M liners. “The transfer of the planes will take at least three months,” the holding’s representative said.
Aksan Giniyatullin, 36, was the fifth and youngest chief of Tatarstan Airlines founded in 1999 on the basis of the Kazan and Nizhnekamsk wings of Aeroflot operating from Kazan airport and Begishevo airport in Naberezhnye Chelny.
