For the new Far Eastern airline, it is proposed to use the Airbus 320 instead of the Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100. Earlier, Vladimir Putin ordered the use of Russian aircraft, but the concept designer is Aurora, proposes foreign ships.

As reported "Vedomosti"The plan is not to create a new airline from scratch, but to develop transportation using budget subsidies on the basis of Avrora Airlines, which is 51% owned by Aeroflot and 49% owned by Sakhalin Oblast. Concept development continues.

The Yakutia Airlines and its subsidiaries Polar Airlines, Chukotavia, Khabarovsk Airlines and Kamchatka Airlines, as well as private helicopter operators Vityaz-aero and Aviashhelf will also develop passenger traffic in the Far Eastern Federal District. A single management company for them will become aurora.

The management of Aurora explained its decision on choosing airliners by the fact that the SSJ100 is not suitable for regional transportation in the Far Eastern Federal District: they are too capacious for weak regional traffic. At the same time, Aurora expects to operate mid-range Airbus 320s, which are even less suitable for regional transportation: they are even more capacious, and the requirements for the runway are higher.

Regional transportation in the Far East is carried out by the An-24/26 turboprops and the An-2 “maize” - their age is more than 40 years. Aurora does not use domestic vessels, in its fleet there are ten medium-haul Airbus 319, six regional turboprops DHC-6 Twin Otter and 13 Bombardier different models.

Earlier it was reported that creation of a new airline for transportation in the Far Eastern Federal District will cost more than the reorganization of an existing one. Therefore, the idea of ​​transforming Aurora into a Far Eastern airline in the Ministry of Transport of Russia is considered sound.
