Russian government step in to assist VIM-Avia passengers

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.

May 2017
VIM Airlines announced it has taken delivery of its first B777-300(ER)

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. 


July 2016
Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency gave local carrier VIM Airlines one week as of July 20 to improve its on-time performance following a series of prolonged delays.

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.
