Transport Minister made the creation of airline on the basis of the Park “Transaero”


The Minister of transport of Russia Maxim Sokolov in an interview to “RIA Novosti” at the Eastern economic forum said it was impossible to revive the “Transaero”, but did not rule out the creation of a new airline on the basis of part of its fleet.

“To revive the company, it is impossible in principle: the air operator certificate — legal actions — speaks once and can not be restored. The air operator certificate revoked. So, to say that on the basis of “Transaero” will revive some company, I don’t believe it,” — said Sokolov.

At the same time, he added, it is theoretically possible to create a carrier by using part of the fleet of “Transaero”. “What can be born of someone’s efforts of a new carrier, or due to the consolidation of the various companies there will be some new quality in the airline created, including using part of the fleet of “Transaero”, theoretically it can be,” said the Minister, adding that “in this river “Transaero” twice is impossible to enter”.

According to Sokolov, the fate of the remaining aircraft of airline “Transaero” will be resolved before the end of 2016. “Together with our leading airlines, the national carrier, the airline “Russia”, leasing companies and banking institutions, we have to decompose the situation on the shelves by the end of this year”, — said Sokolov.

According to him, part of the Transaero aircraft departed the leasing companies and they were added for other aviation companies in the world, the part transferred, including airline “Russia”. “Many are laid, because the discipline of matching units and individual units of these aircraft to one or other lease agreements of the company “Transaero”, especially in the last period of her life, was clearly not up to par. Many planes now, not just pick on certain lease agreements,” stated falcons.

He added that many aircraft during this period have already reached their service life and must now become the so-called severe forms to bring them back to airworthy condition. “In General, it will depend on each specific vessel. The corresponding order of the leadership we have” — he said.

June 30 that on the basis of “Transaero” can be created by the new airline, said CEO Alexander Burdin. “Now we are considering options for the establishment of new airlines, the backbone of which will be the key staff of “Transaero”, — he said, adding that the practice of airline bankruptcies around the world shows that the restart of the company, restructuring of loans and their conversion into shares — almost the only chance for creditors to recover their money.

The same is June 30, wrote the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the representative of “Transaero”.

The decision to bankrupt “Transaero” was adopted at the meeting in the government on 1 October 2015. The operations of the company terminated on October 26. In the middle of December the Arbitration court of St.-Petersburg and Leningrad region upheld the claim of the savings Bank of the bankruptcy of the airline and introduced a procedure of observation.
