Airline Registry adds Russian Airbus

Russia-based S7 Airlines this month acquired its 30th Airbus aircraft all of which are registered in Bermuda.

Transport Minister Derrick Burgess yesterday announced that the Russian airline, which recently became a full member of the Oneworld Alliance, is continuing to expand and registering its aircraft on the Island.

S7 first registered five Boeing 737s in Bermuda in 2005, but that fleet is expected to grow to 38 aircraft this year.

The airline has overtaken former state airline Aeroflot as the largest domestic carrier in Russia. Its planes and flight attendants wear an eye-catching bright green colour scheme.

“All indicators show a continued growing need for western-built aircraft in Russia, which is the largest portion of our current aircraft registry business,” Mr Burgess said.

“It is imperative that we continue to ensure that appropriate safety regulatory oversight is being conducted in accordance to international regulations. By doing this, we are able to maintain this vital revenue stream to Bermuda.

“The Ministry of Transport will continue to support the Department of Civil Aviation in its need for resources and do so in the most efficient ways possible.”
