About VIM Airlines
VIM Avia or VIM Airlines is a Russian airline, which operates both international scheduled and passenger flights from its Moscow hub airport. VIM Airlines flies to many destinations including Osh, Dushanbe, Khujand, Qurghonteppa, Andizhan, Fergana, Namangan, Qarshi, Samarkand, Termez, Gyumri, Yerevan, Ganja, Lankaran, Qabala, Eilat, Dubai, Chisinau, Catania, Naples, Rimini, Tivat and many others.
In 2015, "VIM-AVIA" has carried about 1 600 000 people. The airline has performed 11 414 flights, of which 10 520 were regular (90%). The number of flights has increased by 868. The airline performed flights to Sochi, Krasnodar, Anapa, Simferopol, Chisinau, Magadan, Pevek, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Blagoveshchensk, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Makhachkala, Yerevan, Samarkand, Termez, Karshi, Osh, Namangan, Ferghana, Andijan, Kurgan-Tube, Ganja, Gyumri, Termez, Tenerife, Rimini, Ovda. The flights to cities such as Vladivostok, Magadan, Khabarovsk were resumed. The charter flights were carried out to Spain, Italy, Israel, to the Greek island resorts; also the cooperation with United Nations Organisation has been continued. Currently, VIM Airlines' fleet consists of medium-range aircraft Boeing 777-200, 767-300, 757-200 and Airbus 319-111.
VIM Airlines has selected Boeing Shanghai Aviation Services to carry out maintenance on its newly introduced Boeing 777 fleet. The airline, which has confirmed the agreement, has a single example of the type, a 777-200 delivered in April. Boeing Shanghau Aviation Services is a venture between the US airframer, China Eastern Airlines, and Shanghai airport authorities. VIM-Avia says the maintenance firm has 11 customers in Russia and Central Asia, including AirBridgeCargo and Air Astana.
Carry-on baggage for economy class passengers is one baggage item of up to 10kg.
For Business Class passengers — two baggage items, up to 10 kg each, maximum dimensions — 55×40×20 cm.
Russian authorities are prioritising measures to transport of VIM-Avia passengers in the wake of the financial crisis engulfing the leisure operator. The Russian ministry of transport says the airline has a "lack of funds" to meet obligations to passengers. But it has taken immediate decisions to allow the operator to use its own fleet, or the aircraft of other carriers, to ensure that customers with immediate transport needs are conveyed.
VIM-Avia's operations have been disrupted by the suspension of airport services to the troubled carrier. The ministry says it is drawing up, over the next two days, a schedule of airlines willing to provide capacity for the carrier's network. Moscow Vnukovo airport's operator has already opted to accept VIM-Avia flights from 26 September.
It says the ministry's efforts to establish a schedule of services will focus mainly on domestic routes but also cover a number of international links. Vnukovo's operator states that all VIM-Avia flights will be performed until the backlog of passengers is cleared. VIM-Avia’s aircraft will be "relocated" to Vnukovo, says the airport operator's chairman, Vitaly Vantsev.
The B777 is the youngest and largest aircraft in VIM's fleet. The remainder of VIM's current fleet comprises: four A319-100s, two A330-200s, two B737-500s, three B767-300(ER)s (one in storage), and ten B777-200(ER)s (one in storage). VIM has an assertive expansion plan, taking on new international routes and hoping to attract more foreign travellers. It was recently awarded traffic rights for routes from Moscow to New York JFK, Miami Int'l and Los Angeles Int'l, as well as from Vladivostok to both Los Angeles Int'l and Seattle Tacoma Int'l. Late last year, VIM was also assigned several Chinese route authorities.
VIM Airlines operates four A319-100s, two B737-500s, six B757-200s, one B767-300(ER), and five B777-200(ER)s (three of which are currently active) on scheduled services and charter flights to leisure destinations across Russia, the CIS, and the Mediterranean for and on behalf of local Russian tour operators. The regulator says that even though it warned the carrier early on in the summer season to improve its operations, delays have continued to plague its flight operations. In some cases, passengers have been subjected to delays of up to several hours.
Ikar, Vim-Avia and Nordavia air carriers have applied for operating international flights from Zhukovsky airport in the Moscow Region. Vim-Avia has applied for flights to Spain (Madrid) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam), while Nordavia plans flights to Georgia (Tbilisi), Greece (Thessalonica) and Spain (Barcelona). Zhukovsky international airport was officially unveiled on May 30, 2016. It received the first flight - from Minsk (Belarus) - on September 12.
