To create an airline for the Far Eastern Federal District, they propose to consider Yakutia

The authorities of Yakutia sent a proposal to the Ministry of Transport of Russia to consider the airline "Yakutia" as an air carrier for the Far East, the creation of which was commissioned by President Vladimir Putin.

As Chairman of the Government of Yakutia Vladimir Solodov said during a live broadcast on his Instagram page, Yakutia could become one of the structures on the basis of which an airline for the Far East will be created. According to him, this will give an additional leap to increase the availability of air travel, the cost of flights and a set of affordable flights.

Yakutia is 100% owned by the government of the republic. It is based at the Yakutsk International Airport, from where it performs regular flights throughout the republic, cities of Russia, as well as international scheduled and charter flights.

At the end of 2019, the government began to study options with large banks creating an airline for the Far East. In January 2020, Vladimir Putin instructed the government create such an airline with domestic aircraft. According to preliminary estimates, its creation will require from 10 billion to 30 billion rubles.

According to some reports, Aeroflot proposes to create a new carrier for flights in the Far Eastern Federal District on the basis of its subsidiary - airline "Aurora", which already works on the Far Eastern routes.
