Saratov Airlines (Saratov Airlines Joint Stock Company, Russian: Саратовские авиалинии, Saratovskije avialinii) is a Russian airline headquartered in Saratov and based at Saratov Tsentralny Airport.

History[edit]

Saratov Airlines was founded in 1931. It was called "Saratov United Air Squad" and was a part of Aeroflot. The airline has received a prestigious award, "Krylia Rossii" (Russian Wings), three times. Until 2013 it operated as Saravia (Russian: Саравиа).

In December 2013, Saratov Airlines, became the first Russian operator of Embraer E-Jets, with the arrival of two Embraer 195 114-seat aircraft.

On 14 October 2015, the Russian aviation authorities sanctioned Saratov Airlines after a violation of security rules. The airline was therefore no longer allowed to operate flights to destinations outside of Russia from 26 October 2015.[1] However, by May 2016 the airline had resumed international charter services.[2]
