UTair Express is an airline based in Syktyvkar (Komi, Russia). It is planned by UTair Aviation as a new regional division based on and replacing, its subsidiary Komiinteravia.[1]

History[edit]

Komiinteravia was established in March 1996 and started operations in July 1997.[2] In 2004 UTair gained control of more than 70% of Komiinteravia.[3]

UTair is planning to set up a new regional division using its subsidiary Komiinteravia that will operate as UTair Express using Antonov An-24 and ATR 42-300 aircraft. It is planning to replace its Komiinteravia's An-24 fleet with additional ATR 42-300s over the next few years.[1]

UTair Express completed registration in December 2006 and has emerged from the reorganization of Komiinteravia. The airline received a certificate in commercial air transport operations on Antonov An-24 aircraft. As soon as all of the An-24s have been decommissioned according to the airline’s plan, UTair’s air fleet will include up to 20 ATR 42 aircraft. UTair Express also embraces Russia's largest Tupolev Tu-134 maintenance center.[4]
