UTair" (Russian: ОАО «Авиакомпания «ЮТэйр») (MCXUTAR) is an airline with its head office at Khanty-Mansiysk Airport in Russia.[3] It operates scheduled domestic and some international passenger services, scheduled helicopter services (e.g. from Surgut) plus extensive charter flights with fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters in support of the oil and gas industry across Western Siberia. UTair is also involved with relief operations for the United Nations. Its main base is at Roshchino International Airport (TJM) in Tyumen Oblast, Russia located 13 km west of the city of Tyumen.

History[edit]

In February 1967, the Aeroflot Tyumen Directorate was set up in order to meet the transport requirements of the fast-growing oil and gas industry undergoing development in Western Siberia. In the wake of the break-up of the Aeroflot organization, Tyumenaviatrans Aviation (TAT) was formed in 1991 to replace the Aeroflot Tyumen Directorate. TAT adopted the name of UTair in early 2003. The airline is owned by Khanty Mansiysk District administration (23%), Surgut City administration (19%), Russian shareholders and companies (33%), the Russian Federation (2%), and private foreign investors (20%).

In 2010 the airline named a Tu-154 aircraft after Boris Evdokimovich Sherbina, a Tyumen figure.[4]

Star Alliance[edit]

UTair and Transaero were interested to be the members of Star Alliance.[5] However, both Transaero and UTair failed to meet Star Alliance membership requirements.
