The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov and General Director of the air company “UTAIR” Andre Martirosov signed a cooperation agreement today. According to this document the aircrafts of the company will fly from Ufa to Beloretsk, Neftekamsk and Oktyabrsky. Interregional routes will be developed too.

The company’s aircrafts already fly from Ufa to Sibay, Kazan, Yekaterinburg and Nizhniy Novgorod. Several routes, connecting Ufa with European cities, will be introduced this year.

Rustem Khamitov mentioned the passenger traffic was rather low, so it would be necessary to develop this sphere. As Andre Martirosov says, the attempt to restore the internal air flights over Russia is nearly the unique phenomenon in the country.
