Russia’s Pegas Fly takes delivery of its maiden Embraer
Fleet expansion should help it reach its goal of becoming one of Russia’s 10 biggest airlines (Embraer)
Russian leisure airline Pegas Fly (brand name of the Ikar Airlines) has started taking deliveries of a string of E-Jets, with the arrival of its first Embraer E190 (MSN 19000461), leased from Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC), the Danish lessor has confirmed.
The E-190 is the Krasnoyarsk-based carrier’s latest choice of aircraft, of which it is eventually planning to operate seven: four standard ARs and three longer range LRs.
The fleet expansion programme should help the airline reach its goal of entering Russia’s top-10 league table of biggest airlines.
This will be achieved in 2018 when the airline implements its strategic development plan of expanding its route network capabilities by launching new regular international services, optimising its fleet and adding more aircraft.
“2018 is the year of expansion and development of our fleet,” stresses Oguz Senol Yuce, vice-chairman of Ikar Airlines. “Pegas Fly has successfully managed all the challenges confronting Russian airlines over the past few years – and is now aiming for continued success,” he adds.
The carrier began the process of acceptance of its latest fleet additions in March. The E-Jets are to be based at Zhukovsky airport, near Moscow, and are expected to be operated primarily on international routes.
The new arrival is a seven-year-old Embraer ERJ-190AR (production serial number MSN 19000461), is powered by GE CF34 engines, and was previously operated by American regional airline Frontier. The aircraft has been given the registration number VP-BZC.
Pegas Fly and NordWind, the two airline subsidiaries of Russian-Turkish travel operator Pegas Touristik, intend to expand their collective fleet to 50 aircraft by the end of this year. Krasnoyarsk-headquartered Pegas Fly currently operates six Boeing 767-300s and four Boeing 737s and carried some 300,000 passengers in the first quarter of 2018, a figure which moved it up to 13th in the passenger traffic ranking of Russian airlines.
Pegas Fly has been given the new IATA code of EO, the adoption of which, it says, “will help to expand our geography of regular, international flying.”
Together, Pegas Fly and Nordwind Airlines offer domestic and international scheduled and charter flights to more than 200 destinations. Regular Pegas Fly services from its two bases at Moscow and Krasnoyarsk, and from over 30 other Russian cities, currently make up 75 per cent of the group’s daily flight services to destinations in Russia, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South America.

Nordwind Airlines to add more A330s, phase out its B767-300ERs and acquire A321neos
Nordwind Airlines is planning to lease four more A330 in 2019, ideally with Rolls-Royce-Royce Trent 700-powered A330s, but the airline is open to Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines depending on market availability. Further A330s will be added to the fleet from 2020, when the group's six B767s are phased out, beginning from 2018.
Nordwind's two in-service A330-200s, which are dry-leased from Turkish Airlines under short-term contracts, will be returned and replaced with two long-term leased units, which are powered by PW4000 engines.
The carrier also plans to add A321neos to its fleet in 2019 and 2020 -- with an order for 35 in total. Today, Nordwind has eight A321s.
The introduction of A330 and A321neos also constitute a key part of the airline's fleet renewal plans. It is intended that the A330s will homogenize the fleet and replace the airline's B767-300ERs; two of which are already will be phase out this year. The airline's renewed objectives center on the commonality, efficiency and modernity of its fleet, which currently fly across Europe, South America, Asia and domestically.

Nordwind Airlines to start A330 operations shortly
Russia’s Nordwind Airlines will put its two recently received Airbus A330-200 widebodies into revenue operation by the end of next week. The airliners’ first flights will be to Irkutsk and Khabarovsk.
The addition of the two aircraft (VP-BYU and VP-BYV) is part of Nordwind’s fleet and route network expansion strategy. Fitted with 279 seats in two-class cabin configuration, the six-year-old aircraft were both previously operated by TAM Linhas Aereas and Turkish Airlines.
Nordwind says it offers the widest route network from Simferopol in Crimea, with flights to 25 destinations across Russia. After the end of the seasonal flights to Crimea the airline plans to start routing its scheduled flights through Moscow to provide connections with popular leisure destinations abroad for passengers traveling from Russian regions.
Speaking of the possibility of code-share agreements with international carriers, Nordwind Commercial Director Imran Nazarov said that several options are being considered: “We are primarily focused on tourist traffic. Our main traffic figures are for Thailand and Vietnam in the winter time. So we are looking to provide convenient connections for our passengers within Thailand, so they can fly to their destinations after arriving at Bangkok. We are looking at two carriers; it’s likely to be Bangkok Airways, but we have not made a final decision yet.”
The Airbus A330 is the fourth type of aircraft in the carrier’s fleet after the Boeing 737, Boeing 777, and Airbus A321.
Nordwind is one of Russia’s 10 largest airlines by traffic.
In the first five months of 2017 it carried 518,800 passengers, up 112.6% on the same period last year. The carrier’s route network comprises over 85 destinations across Russia and beyond.
