Dobrolet was a Russian LCC backed by Aeroflot. The carrier launched its inaugural service on 11-Jun-2014, from its hub at Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport to Simferopol, located on the Crimean Peninsula. Dobrolet provided domestic services to cities throughout Russia and planned to offer international services to destinations in Europe once its domestic route network had been consolidated.
Due to the dispute in the Crimea, the carrier was blacklisted by the European Union and was grounded on 04-Aug-2014. Sanctions resulted in the annulment of all aircraft leasing, maintenance, repair and insurance agreements between Dobrolet and its European counterparties. According to Russia's aviation regulator; Rosaviatsiya, Dobrolet’s air operator’s certificate granted on 10-May-2014 still remains valid.
On 16-Sep-2014, Aeroflot established a new low cost carrier; Pobeda (Byudgetniy Perevozchik) due to the restrictions placed on Dobrolet. Aeroflot will reportedly keep the Dobrolet brand in order for it to resume operations once sanctions are lifted.
On 21-Jul-2015, Aeroflot announced its decision to liquidate the LLC subsidiary.
