Saratov Airlines owner, Arkady Evstafiev, plans to set up a new airline, one day after Saratov Airlines had its AOC revoked by regulators as a result of its fatal crash in February 2018.

The new airline will be set up on the basis of the existing platform, in order to employ existing labor.

Despite its AOC being canceled, the legal entity of Saratov Airlines continues to operate, as over 1,000 are employed with the airline.
