author: Lubov Kolokolova

Small aviation will be developed in Bashkortostan and internal republican air flights still remain undecided because expenses on transportation of passengers aren’t yet repaid, the chairman of the state committee RB for and road economy Ilyas Munirov reported in the course of his online conference on the site of “The Public Electronic Newspaper”.

According to him Bashkiria managed to preserve the network of landing strips. At present time there are more than 30 of them. Airports in Sibay and Neftekamsk are fully restored.

“If we manage to find customers, our aircrafts can fly to Sibay, Neftekamsk, Beloretsk and other Republican towns” – he said – “But now local air flights still remain unprofitable”.

“Small aviation will be private” – the chairman confirmed – “But the Republic is taking the course to opening of a cluster of small aviation”.
