MOSCOW, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Aeroflot flagship carrier will carry all passengers who bought before January 4 tickets for codeshare flights with Ukrainian AeroSvit facing financial difficulties, Aeroflot Director General Vitaly Savelyev said on Tuesday.
“We will carry all who bought tickets before January 4 inclusive for any date,” he wrote in his Twitter microblog in reply to a question by Echo of Moscow radio about the fate of the codeshare flights with the Ukrainian airlines from Moscow and back.
Earlier reports said the Ukrainian AeroSvit Airlines facing financial difficulties had cancelled 17 flights – eight arrivals and nine departures.
On December 29, 2012, upon considering a petition from AeroSvit, the Arbitration Court of the Kiev Region launched the court proceedings in the bankruptcy of the air company. Meanwhile, the court ruled to launch the procedure of the Aerosvit property crisis management. The court hearings are scheduled at a preparatory court session on January 23.
The debts of the air company to the creditors reached about 533 million dollars as of December 27, 2012.
The carrier was founded in 1994 and is based at the Kiev’s airport Borispol. This air carrier has the most sweeping network of regular international routes, serves over 60 flights in 34 countries, including five transcontinental nonstop airlines to New York, Toronto, Beijing, New Delhi and Bangkok. Aerosvit ensures the transportation of the passengers in the largest Ukrainian cities, including Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, the Zaporozhye Region, Ivano-Frankovsk, Lvov, Odessa, Simferopol and Kharkov.
