Russian scheduled and charter airline Azur Air is pushing into Europe with the introduction of new scheduled services.
The airline was formerly called Katekavia and operated under the ownership of UT Air before its demise.
Now rebranded, the airline is modernizing its fleet and starting services from its base at Krasnoyarsk to Barcelona, as well as Rostov-on-Don to Barcelona. It will also begin services to Bangkok from Krasnoyarsk.
This comes after the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) granted the airline an air safety certificate.
Azur Air operates a fleet of nine Boeing 757-200 and five 767-300 aircraft. It continues to operate seasonal services to other destinations in Spain and further afield.
