Rostekhnologii Will Get 3 Far-Eastern Airlines Rejected By Aeroflot – Transport Ministry

MOSCOW. Sept 5 (Interfax) - The state-owned corporation, Rostekhnologii, will receive from the government not only Vladivostok Avia, but also other Far-Eastern airline companies, Dalavia and Sakhalinskiye Aviatrassy, after they were rejected by Aeroflot which until recently was planning to set up a Far-Eastern subsidiary, said Alexander Misharin, Deputy Transport Minister.

"The decision on Vladivostok Avia has been made. Moreover, because Aeroflot refused two other airlines, Dalavia and Sakhalinskiye Aviatrassy, these can also be transferred to Rostekhnologii," he told a press conference at the Interfax head office on Friday.
