Airline «Russia» (enters into group «Aeroflot») will be used in socially significant transportations in the far East, said the group CEO Vitaly Savelyev at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Thus «Aeroflot» has no plans to sell «daughter».

«We want it (Russia — ed.) to leave and give her the role of social company, because there is not much new planes we inherited from the «Transaero», and compete with such cars on the market right now is very difficult. Given that we carry the social burden, social transportation, we want these machines to target», — said Saveliev.

«Russia», he said, will be more fulfilling flights to the far East on the «flat» rates. «But for the population increase in General, capacitive suggestions for flat rates will be 9%,» — said the CEO.
