Aeroflot, the Russian carrier has announced plans to launch a low-cost subsidiary, reports Oliver Smith of the Telegraph, Travel News UK. The budget arm could be unveiled as soon as next year, according to a report in the Russian newspaper Vedomosti. It is expected to be based at Moscow’s secondary airport, initially linking St   Petersburg and the capital with cities in the south of the country. It could then expand to serve international destinations including Kiev, Yerevan, Istanbul and Barcelona using a fleet of Boeing 737s.

Historically, Aeroflot has a poor safety record. Its aircraft have been involved in hundreds of fatal accidents, making it the butt of jokes about vodka-swilling pilots. However it has made great strides to improve its reputation in recent years.
