“We have not grounded the aircraft, which are leased, although two months do not pay us for leasing. So we approached very flexibly to all of the commitments today, “Transaero” had were made with the help of “Aeroflot” with the help of the government, which, by the way, will support those financial companies that will carry passengers “Transaero”, — said Kostin on the TV channel “Russia 24”.

It seems to us that the salvation of “Transaero” it is impossible, the debt is very large, and the government does not consider it necessary to save him. And, in my opinion, makes it justified.
