Vice-President ATOR: “Kogalymavia” is one of the best airlines in the Russian Federation


“Kogalymavia” is considered one of the best private airline in Russia. She is very financially stable, has serious owners and is in control of the largest holding”, – said Vice-President of the Association of tour operators of Russia Dmitry Gorin.

MOSCOW, 1 Nov. Vice-President of the Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR) Dmitry Gorin said Sunday that he believes “Kogalymavia” (Metroget) one of the best and financially stable private companies in Russia.

“Kogalymavia” (Metroget) really is considered one of the best private airline in Russia. She is very financially stable, has serious owners and is managed by the largest holding company. The condition of this company compared to others is just perfect,” — said the Agency interlocutor.

He said that the airline “Kogalymavia” has been around for many years, and since 2012, after rebranding, the owners of the holding TH&C took her to his office. Gorin also explained that the confusion with the name of the airline is because left old flag “Kogalymavia”, but the new brand-name airlines Metroget. He stressed that the tour operator Brisco is not the owner of the carrier only acts as a General contractor, but all of them are in groups-a company TH&C.

“The tour operator itself, and the airline itself, they are the largest holding. Therefore, to talk about some of the savings on the aircraft is not serious. When they show scenes of the aircraft, “Kogalymavia”, most of them were already removed when the old owners. The new owners are very serious about the airline and not save any in the service, nor for the crews,” — says Gorin.

“I interviewed representatives of the other airlines, they all say that the captain was hyperprolactinoma such in Russia on the fingers can be counted,” he said and drew attention to the fact that “the fact that yesterday, the aircraft continued the flight, tells that they have all the technical routine inspection”.

The Airbus-321 of airline “Kogalymavia”, who on Saturday was flying from Sharm El Sheikh to St Petersburg, crashed in the Sinai. Onboard there were 217 passengers and seven crew members. They all died.
