Red Wings Airlines is a Russian airline providing both scheduled passenger and cargo charter services. Red Wings Airlines is based in Vnukovo Airport in Moscow, Russia. The airline was founded in 1999 under the name VARZ-400, after the Russian acronym of the Vnukovo Avia Repair Factory. In 2001, the airline was renamed Airlines 400, before rebranding to its current name in 2007. In 2019, the airline has been granted the rights to manage a newly launched airline - Arktika Airline.

Red Wings Airlines has a codeshare agreement with another Russian airline, Nordavia. The codeshare agreement was created when the owner of Red Wings Airlines Sergey Kuznetsov purchased Nordavia. The original plan was to merge Red Wings Airlines and Nordavia into one airline that would operate each of the airlines' routes under a new brand name and identity. However, it was later decided that the merger would not go ahead as plan and Red Wings' Airlines would maintain its brand and identity and that a codeshare agreement was to be signed between the two airlines. In addition to this, Nordavia is set to rebrand as SmartAvia, although, this rebranding is still in process.
