Right before the professional holiday, the Day of Russia's Air Fleet, Azimuth Airlines received an air operator's certificate - a document giving a legal entity the right to operate.

Currently a range of preparatory works is being carried out, service is to begin in September.

Previously, the specialists of the Transport Strategy Consortium (TSC) developed the strategy, a business plan and a financial model for the air carrier.  The specialists of the consortium provide consulting support for the new airline regarding the attraction of funding and other projects at the startup stage.

Azimuth Airlines plans to operate comfortable Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft on routes, connecting cities within the Southern and North Caucasian Federal Districts, as well as other Russian cities.

Azimuth Airlines, which is the home air carrier of the future Platov airport in Rostov region, plans to open routes from just Rostov-on-Don to 25 cities by 2021.

"Eduard Teplitsky, the chief operating officer of Azimuth Airlines said during the meeting with Vitaly Borzenko, the head of local administration, that Azimuth will develop direct passenger travel from Rostov-on-Don, bypassing Moscow air cluster, as well as regular direct and transfer international travel.  As early as 2017 the company plans to operate direct flights from Platov airport to Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Sochi, Simferopol, Nizhny Novgorod, Ekaterinburg, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Ufa, Samara, Kazan, Grozny, Makhachkala", the statement says.

Azimuth Airlines - the home air carrier of Rostov-on-Don airport - will change its base to Platov airport.  The new international Platov airport is being constructed in Aksay district of Rostov region, 30 km north to Rostov-on-Don.  It will replace the existing airport, that will be withdrawn from service and subsequently integrated into the urban setting.  The project is implemented on the basis of a public-private partnership within the "Air transport" subprogram of the "Russian transport system development (2010-2020)" FTP and the 2018 FIFA World Football Cup preparation and running program.

Effective development of a region's transport system requires a balanced strategy that in the short term, in 10, 20 and more years will provide the region with infrastructure, outrunning demand in terms of all modes of transport.
Many large world regions, leaders in transport product volume and transshipment, handling transit and transfer passengers, started out by creating a development strategy for multimodal transport hubs (MTH) based at promising ports, stations, and airports.
Many regions are geographically remote and located away from large transport hubs. They are characterized by poor land transport infrastructure and have many unique characteristics that implicate a peculiar approach to transport planning.
The TSC's areas of expertise include professional strategic planning in IT, development of innovative IT solutions for transport, tourism, transport engineering.
One of the core activities of TSC is the design and turn-key implementation of territory development projects for areas adjacent to transport infrastructure facilities.
The Transport Strategy Center Consortium (TSC) provides expert consulting assistance to regional authorities and transport organizations in developing comprehensive strategies for the development of transport infrastructure projects and attracting public and private funding for their implementation.
