Based on the created Far Eastern routes, the "Russian Post" intends to create its own airline
Russian Post intends to create its own airline by 2018. This was stated by the CEO of the company Dmitry Strashnov, speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
“I think we will acquire two or three main aircrafts. Of course, we need a medium-haul aviation program, ”Strashnov said.
Alexander Kiselev, who headed the Post of Russia at that time, advanced the idea of creating his own aircraft fleet of airplanes back in 2009. In 2012, he confirmed this intention in an interview with Izvestia, complaining about the complexity of mail delivery due to the lack of regional aviation.
In December 2012, the Post of Russia acquired the first L-410 aircraft, which began to transport mail from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to hard-to-reach areas of the Khabarovsk Territory, which, according to the company, made it possible to shorten the delivery time of correspondence.
At the same time in the "Post of Russia" they said that before 2015, they will expand their fleet to 7-10 aircraft and 5-8 helicopters. It was expected that aircraft will deliver correspondence and parcels in regions with poorly developed transport links: in Yakutia, Tyumen, Magadan and Kamchatka regions, and also in Chukotka.
