For the fleet of the airline, which will be created for the Far East, they will purchase the new Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100). According to preliminary estimates of the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Eastern Development, the air carrier will need 20 such airliners.

As the head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov told reporters, this will be a good order for the United Aircraft Corporation, whose factory produces the SSJ100 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

In January of this year, President Vladimir Putin instructed the government create an airline for the Far East. At the same time, he noted that only domestic aircraft should be in the carrier’s fleet. According to preliminary estimates, the creation of a company will require from 10 billion to 30 billion rubles.

Creating a company from scratch will cost more than reorganizing an existing one, so the Ministry of Transport of Russia supports the idea Aurora transformations. The route grid for the future airline of the Ministry of East Development, the Ministry of Transport and the authorities of the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District will develop until the end of February.
