Meanwhile, Ak Bars Aero (BGM) has announced it will absorb the assets of Tatarstan Air ((IATA) Code: U9, based at Kazan International) (TAK) which is set to lose its Air Operators Certificate (AOC) on December 31.

News Item A-2: Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, has suspended the air operator’s certificate (AOC) for Bugulma-based, Ak Bars Aero (BGM) airline. (CEO), Petr Trubayev had asked aviation authorities to temporarily suspend the airline’s (AOC) for the winter period due to declining passenger numbers.
“The changes in currency exchange rates have led to lease payments problems, which also led to cost increases in Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO), insurance and pilot (FC) training,” (BGM) said.
(BGM) expects to resume flights later this year, concentrating mostly on regional destinations that are subsidized by federal and regional governments.
Ak Bars Aero (BGM) is now focusing on fleet and operational costs optimization. In December, (BGM) announced it will transfer part of its Cessna Grand Caravan and Bombardier CRJ200 airplanes to other regional airlines, although it did not disclose the number of airploanes to be withdrawn.
According to Russian laws, (BGM) will be able to re-establish its (AOC) three months after suspension. Otherwise, the (AOC) will be canceled.
Over the last several months, Rosaviatsia has suspended and then canceled (AOC)s for several Russian carriers, including Moskovia (GAI), Bylina, Polet (SDM), and Air Samara.
