Aeroflot Grounds Airplanes for Lack of Pilots, Vedomosti Reports

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Aeroflot, Russia’s largest airline, is grounding airplanes because of a lack of pilots, Vedomosti reported, citing Chief Executive Officer Vitaly Savelyev.

The state-run carrier has already grounded eight airplanes and may have to take another four of five out of service by the end of the year, the Moscow-based newspaper reported today.

Aeroflot has to remove pilots from rotation once they’ve flown 800 hours within a 12 month period, Vedomosti said.
