Kyrgyzstan start-up Air Manas has launched a Russian operation with services to three cities.
On 15 April, the Bishkek-based carrier started regular flights to Krasnoyarsk, Moscow and Perm.
It uses two Boeing 737s – one -800 and a -400 – wet-leased from Turkish airline Pegasus.
Air Manas intends to add more destinations in Russia after receiving further aircraft.
Domestically, Air Manas operates between Bishkek and Osh. It also provides services from Bishkek to Istanbul using the Pegasus Asia brand.
