New airline for Crimea

Mikhail Bryachak first deputy chairman of the Crimean State Duma Committee for Transport. Crimea has stated that a new national airline will be created this year.

“Creating a Crimean airline is a necessary task. It should happen this year. We have to overcome bureaucratic barriers, but this is only a temporary problem that we will surely overcome,” Bryachak said in a radio interview.

Plans are already in motion and have the approval of the head of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, as well as Russia’s Rosaviatsia aviation watchdog. The airline will be state supported and operate a fleet of modernized Tu-154s.
