Operators in Russia

In 2003, Bombardier’s Dash 8 turboprop became the first Western-built regional aircraft to obtain Russian certification and registration and is now operating in support of oil and gas development on offshore Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East with Sakhalin Air Transport (SAT). SAT is operating three Dash 8/Q200 and three Q300 turboprops.

In 2006, final certification for the 50-seat CRJ200 regional jet was completed, paving the way for this world-renowned regional aircraft to operate in the Russian market. In February 2008, RusLine of Moscow became the first airline to operate scheduled flights with a CRJ regional jet in Russia, flying a previously owned 50-seat CRJ100 aircraft. Today, RusLine and five other Russian airlines - AkBars Aero, IRAero, Severstal, UTair, and Yamal - operate over 60 CRJ100/200 aircraft.

Other operators of Bombardier-produced commercial aircraft in the CIS include Armavia (three CRJ100 aircraft) in Armenia; Belavia (four CRJ100/200 aircraft) in Belarus; Georgian Airways (four CRJ200 aircraft) in Georgia; and Euro-Asia Air (one CRJ700 aircraft), Prime Aviation (one Q200 turboprop), SCAT Airways (two CRJ200 aircraft) and Sapsan (two CRJ200 aircraft) in Kazakstan.
