About This File

Rossiya Airlines is a Russian airline based in Moscow. It is the country's second-largest air carrier and the fifth-largest in Europe.

Rossiya Airlines is a Russian airline company that belongs to the Airline Alliance SkyTeam. It was founded in 1992.

Rossiya Airlines is the flag carrier of Russia and operates international passenger services to more than 60 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America. In 2015, Rossiya Airlines carried nearly 12 million passengers on more than 16 thousand flights.

Rossiya Airlines is one of the largest airlines in Russia and one of the leading airlines in Eastern Europe. The airline was originally founded on 24 June 1923 as Dobrolyot by a group of Russian industrialists headed by Vladimir Vasilyevich Dementyev, who served as its first president.

Rossiya Airlines has been expanding its international flight destinations from Moscow and Saint Petersburg to many global cities such as New York, Copenhagen, Tel Aviv, Beijing, Bangkok, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

The airline's livery is classic red with the word "Rossiya" written in white on the fuselage (the word "Russia" is spelled with a double “i” to distinguish it from the English language).

Rossiya Airlines is the major domestic carrier of Russia. The company is headquartered in Moscow and operates from three hubs, Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport, Kazan International Airport and Pulkovo International Airport.

Rossiya was established on 23 March 1932 as an aviation department of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic's People's Commissariat for Transport by Sergei Ilyushin. Shortly after, Ilyushin and his wife Glafira Efimovna created the aircraft manufacturing company, whose name she coined to honour her husband, who died in 1930. On 1 January 1934 their son Sergei Ilyushin became head of the company. In 1990 Rossiya became one of the first Soviet airlines to operate independently from Aeroflot.
