As is informed on a Rosaviation site, the decision on prolongation of certificates is dictated by necessity of end by the companies of performance of programs of flights under the summer schedule, and also in order to avoid mass failures of aviatransportations and infringement of the rights of passengers. As to “ Samaras “ the company on a number of criteria has been recognised by less capable to carry out of the obligations. “ a cause of a failure in certificate prolongation “ to Samara “ there was its financial position which has appeared heavier, than at other companies, at which not such big debts. Besides, at “ Krasejra “ and “ Domodedovsky airlines “ depth of sales hardly more than at “ Samaras “ that too was the factor for decision-making. Our decisions were co-ordinated with the future proprietors GK “ Rostehnologii “ and airline “ Atlant - the Union “ - they have decided to begin procedure of transfer of routes with this company “ - have informed yesterday in Rosaviation. By data from open sources, airline accounts payable “ Samara “ has increased from 972,49 million rbl. for January, 1st, 2008 to 1,14 mlrd roubles for July, 1st, 2008.
In airline “ Samara “ do not agree with Rosaviation. “ we also have obligations to passengers, as well as at other companies.

in AiRUnion also do not agree with Rosaviation arguments. “ Krasejr “ certainly, was the donor of an alliance. But to say that activity of this or that company was worse or better, I would not become. At airline “ Samara “ there were normal, high-grade prospects, therefore it and has entered into an alliance “ - tells a press - secretary AiRUnion Olga Trapeznikova.
According to experts, stay of action of the certificate ekspluatanta says that the companies “ Samara “ actually does not exist any more. “ to restore the certificate, of course, it is possible, but in this case on that volume of infringements which are fixed, it is almost unreal.
