Aeroflot to create Domodedovo-based budget division

Aeroflot reportedly plans to create a budget division, scheduled to commence service in 2013, with the carrier to be based at Moscow Domodedovo as opposed to Moscow Sheremetyevo (The Moscow News, 22-Dec-2010). Aeroflot, the largest airline at Sheremetyevo, has complained that a lack of space at the airport is restricting its growth. The airline has reduced projected passenger numbers by 10% due to lack of capacity on runways (Vedomosti, 22-Dec-2010).
