"We are thinking of creating an airline using locally-manufactured aircraft to ensure regular flights to Crimea,” Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. This would reconnect services with territory reunited with Russia after a March referendum split it from Ukraine.
The country's first low-cost airline, Dobrolyot, sister company of flag carrier Aeroflot, was forced on August 4 to stop eight two-way daily flights to Crimea, using two leased Boeing 737-800s and one SSJ-100 aircraft. Plans had been laid before they were grounded to increase the number of leased aircraft to eight before the end of 2014.
Now, say officials, Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet 100, Tu-214 and Tu-204 aircraft are likely sucessors to resume the service, the Transport Ministry saying access to Crimea will be maintained.
