There are about six to 10 Russian airlines whose operations raise questions, Viktor Basargin, head of the Federal Service for Transport Oversight, told reporters.

Defense   Regular inspections of airlines
Airline VIM-Avia is currently in a difficult financial situation, with its payables estimated at around 10 billion rubles.

The airline has delayed a large number of flights since mid-summer to September 25, when it said it had no money to continue operations and had to stop charter flights.

“We are holding regular inspections of airlines, but I would not like to name the airlines that violate regulations,” he said, adding that there are some airlines in the risk zone.

“There are companies which we are tracking in a constant monitoring regime, there are about six to 10 of them. We are closely looking at their activity.”
