KD Avia resumes flights

13 Mar 2009 by Mark Caswell

Russian carrier KD Avia has resumed operations, following “the introduction of state aid for the airline”.

The airline suspended flights on Wednesday (see online news March 12), but has since resumed operations. An official statement on the airline’s website said:

“A coordinated approach has been taken by the Ministry of Transportation of the Russian Federation, Rosaviation and a number of financial institutions in order to facilitate the introduction of state aid for the airline.

“This has led to the immediate lifting of any temporary restrictions placed by leasing companies on the operation of KD Avia’s fleet of aircraft.

“KD Avia is now able to continue its daily flying program without any further disruption, whilst measures are taken to fully complete the financial arrangements.”

KD Avia serves Gatwick from its base in Kaliningrad. For more information visit
