Center-South is a Russian passenger airline based in Belgorod.

History[edit]

In early 2014 the airline received the first of two Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, which is due to be operated under a lease agreement for AtlasJet on charter flights.[1] The airline is the official carrier of the volleyball club VC Lokomotiv-Belogorie.[2]

On 17 September 2015, Rosaviation announced to suspend Centre-South Airlines operating certificate due to several rules violations.[3] Following the rules, if the airline plans to have a wide range of flights (as Centre-South has), it needs to have not less than 8 aircraft with capacity of not less than 50 people, however, the airline has only five aircraft of the required type, including two Tupolev Tu-134 and three Sukhoi Superjet 100. Plus the aircraft were not checked for damages.[4]
