Aeroflot to Get 6 Carriers

Russian Technologies will transfer six airlines valued at 2.5 billion rubles ($89.4 million) to Aeroflot Russian Airlines in exchange for stock in the Russian flag carrier, Aeroflot chief executive Vitaly Savelyev said Thursday.

At that value, Russian Technologies would receive 3.61 percent of Aeroflot shares. The valuation of the aviation assets is effective March 31, 2010. Aeroflot will be gaining Vladivostokavia, Kav-minvodyavia, Orenburg Airlines, Saratov Airlines, Sakhalin Air Routes, and the airline Rossia, Savelyev said.

The companies, except for Kavminvodyavia, are already incorporated; Kav­minvodyavia will be by the end of June. Savelyev said they would be Aeroflot subsidiaries.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
