Aeroflot Russian Airlines
On February 25, 1932, the Central Administration of the Civil Air Fleet was founded and “Aeroflot” was adapted as the official abbreviation of the country’s civil aviation service.
In 1956 Aeroflot launched the world’s first jet, the TU-104, to operate on Russia’s domestic and international routes.
In August 1959, Sheremetyevo Airport was opened with the primary task of accommodating international flights.
In the late 1950s, the TU-114, the world’s largest aircraft equipped with more efficient turbo-prop engines, underwent rigorous testing and was put into commercial operation by Aeroflot.
In January 1971, the Aeroflot Central Administration of International Air Traffic was established within the framework of the International Airline Transportation Administration, and became the industry’s sole enterprise authorized to operate international flights. Abroad the airline was known as “Aeroflot Soviet Airlines”
In 1980, Aeroflot was named the general carrier of participants in the XXII Olympic Games held in Moscow. A new international airport, Sheremetyevo 2, capable of simultaneously handling 31 aircraft of any type, was constructed in order to welcome athletes and guests to the capital from all over the world. The official opening ceremony was held on May 6.
In 1991, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, former Soviet republics and regions in Russia began founding their own airline companies. Our company was the successor to the Aeroflot name and trademark of the former Soviet air carrier. In June of that year, the “Aeroflot Soviet Airlines” Commercial Production Alliance was created, which was transformed into the open stock company “Aeroflot Russian International Airlines” on July 28, 1992.
These flights are operated by A319 or A320 (max 112cm height).
