CJSC "Aeroflot-Cargo" (Russian: ЗАО «Аэрофлот-Карго») was a fully owned subsidiary of Aeroflot, founded on 26 October 2005 and incorporated on 19 April 2006.[1][2] It was the second largest cargo airline in Russia, behind Volga-Dnepr subsidiary AirBridge Cargo.[3] In June 2009 the shareholders of Russia's flagship air carrier, Aeroflot, decided to declare the company's cargo subsidiary, Aeroflot Cargo, bankrupt.[4]

The cargo division of Aeroflot now operates as part of the airline's regular fleet instead of a subsidiary. On May 11, 2011 Aeroflot Russian Airlines completed preparations for joining the global airline alliance SkyTeam Cargo. They will be the 9th member of the alliance.
