Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency issued an AOC to a new cargo carrier, Erofei, operating under the brand E-Cargo. E-Cargo plans to operate one B757-200F initially, with plans to secure five aircraft.

Erofei is registered in Khabarovsk and 100% owned by Andrew Chuprov.

The first aircraft is already at Moscow Domodedovo airport with the first commercial flight occurring on 24 July 2018 to Pevek.

Chuprov says the company will focus on the delivery of Far East cargo on domestic and international routes.
