Rossiya Airlines OJSC, operating as Rossiya — Russian Airlines (Russe: «Россия — Российские авиалинии», Rossiya — Rossiyskie avialinii) is a secondary national airline with its head office in Saint Petersburg, Russie, resulting from the 2006 merger of the Moscow-based company of the same name and Saint Petersburg-based Pulkovo Aviation Enterprise. The airline operates scheduled and charter passenger flights from Saint Petersburg and Moscow, and VIP flights on behalf of the Russian government, including the operation of the Russian presidential aircraft fleet for the President of Russia. Rossiya maintains an operational base at Pulkovo Airport in Saint Petersburg.
La compagnie a été créée en 1992 and is wholly owned by the Russian government. Dans 2006 the Russian government merged Rossiya Airlines with Pulkovo Aviation Enterprise and on October 29 the new airline started flying under the name Rossiya. The merger process began in December 2004. En novembre 2006 it was announced that the merger had been completed and Rossiya Airlines was registered in Saint Petersburg on 9 Octobre 2006 and has a branch in Moscow and 54 offices in Russia and abroad. En février 2010, the Russian government announced that all regional airlines owned by the state through the holding company ‘Rostechnologii’ would be consolidated with the national carrier Aeroflot in order to increase the airlines’ financial viability. Operations based in Moscow are predominantly non-scheduled ones for state organisations, or flights operated on behalf of Aeroflot; apart from Rossiya continuing Pulkovo’s lead role on the Moscow-St Petersburg route.
Rossiya Airlines arising from the merger with Pulkovo Airlines, the bulk of the scheduled service operation is from Russia’s second-largest city, Saint-Pétersbourg, where Pulkovo was the dominant airline, and Rossiya continues to be.
