Privately-run Ural Airlines, Russia’s fifth largest carrier, transported 597,000 passengers in February 2024, which is 13% higher than last year’s figures and 16% more than in pre-pandemic February 2019.

“This is a record figure for all years of the airline’s operations,” confirmed Sergey Skuratov, CEO of the-Yekaterinburg-based Ural Airlines.

323,100 passengers were carried on domestic flights and 274,000 transported internationally (majority of them on the CIS destinations).

3,661 flights were performed in February, equally divided between domestic and international ones: 1,830 flights within Russia, 1,831 international flights (including 1,646 to the CIS countries).

Since the beginning of the year, the airline has carried a total of 1.275 million passengers (+15% year-on-year and +14% compared to 2019); 7,768 flights were performed (+10%).

In February, Ural Airlines resumed flights to Istanbul from Yekaterinburg; flights to Beijing are scheduled to re-start in March.

Late last year, privately-run Ural Airlines managed to finalize the aircraft insurance settlement for 19 Airbus narrowbodies, which allowed the carrier to re-start international routes to five countries.
