Perm Airlines (Russian: Пермские авиалинии) was an airline based in Perm, Russia. It operated domestic and international scheduled and charter services within Russia and the CIS. Its main base was Bolshoye Savino Airport, Perm.[2]

History[edit]

The airline was established and started operations in 1968. It was formed from the Aeroflot Perm Division (Ural RCAD). Throughout its operational history, Perm Airlines offer routes from Perm Bolshoye Savino airport to Moscow Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo airports, Ekaterinburg, Surgut, Baku, Novosibirsk and St. Petersburg (codeshare flight with St. Petersburg based Pulkovo Airlines). Furthermore it operated charter flights to Adler/Sochi, Baikonur, Simferopol and Dubai. As a result of an agreement between Perm Airlines and Siberian Airlines (the current S7 Airlines), all regular Perm Airlines passenger flights were carried out by Sibir Airlines.

Perm Airlines had its license revoked on May 16, 2009.[3]

Fleet[edit]

The Perm Airlines fleet includes the following aircraft (at May 2008):

All three Tu-154 aircraft were leased by Sibir Airlines in 2006, to be phased out in 2008. Although the aircraft still stand at Perm Bolshoye Savino airport, the engines were removed and sold off in 2009.

Accidents and incidents[edit]

In October 2007, a 15 year old boy sneaked into the landing gear compartment of a Tupolev Tu-154 belonging to Perm Airlines and successfully flew to Moscow. He suffered from frostbite and had his fingers amputated. An employee of Perm Airlines will be tried in the court because of his failure to inspect the plane carefully before departure.[4]
