In 2020, Utair plans to launch year-round services from Ufa to Krasnodar, Sochi, Mineralnye Vody, Rostov-on-Don and Volgograd, as well as to increase the number of its daily direct flights from Ufa to regional destinations in Russia from 6 to 10.

'Ufa is an important transport hub for transit passengers from Siberia. Launching direct flights to the South and the Volga region will increase the flow of passengers and tourists passing through the republic’s capital. I have no doubt that the new routes will help people in Russia to travel in any direction quickly and economically,' said Utair Passenger Airlines president Pavel Permyakov.
