New Vim service to Russian Far East
Starting today (23 May 2014), the Russian carrier Vim Airlines is operating two new services between its hub at Moscow Domodedovo airport to the Russian Far East, with three weekly flights to Blagoveshchensk and Komsomolsk Na Amure.
The airline that formerly based its operations on an all-Boeing fleet, has taken delivery of its first Airbus, an A319 on lease from Ansett Worldwide Aviation Services (AWAS). The aircraft will be joined by another, also on lease from AWAS, later this year. In August 2013, Vim also placed orders for five Bombardier CS300s and for five Tupolev Tu-204s, with the first one to be deployed from 13 June between Moscow and Anapa, located on the northern coast of the Black Sea.
