Aeroflot’s low-fare subsidiary Pobeda (which is Russian for ‘Victory’) has been granted an operator’s certificate and air transportation licence from the Russian Federal Aviation Agency, meaning the airline can begin selling flights immediately.
The six destinations to which Pobeda are already offering fares include Volgograd, Samara, Ekaterinburg, Perm, Tyumen and Belgorod. These will all be operated on a narrow-body Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft carrying up to 189 passengers, but as new aircraft join the fleet, Pobeda hope to increase the initial flight frequencies will and launch connections to new destinations.
Pobeda will make its maiden flight on 1 December from terminal A of Vnukovo international airport in Moscow.
