Ural Airlines celebrates 20th anniversary

Last week, Ural Airlines held a gala reception at Yekaterinburg's Hyatt Regency to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

During the anniversary reception, Sverdlovsk Governor Yevgeny Kuyvashev offered his congratulations to Ural Airlines and praised the company for its contributions in developing the Sverdlovsk region's economy and tourism industry.

Several other regional government officials were in attendance as well, including Presidential Envoy Advisor Viktor Guz and Deputy Head of Yekaterinburg Eugene Lipovich.

Twenty years ago, the airline company opened as Sverdlovsk Air, operating a small amount of flights around the Sverdlovsk and surrounding regions. Now, it is one of the largest Russian air carriers operating partnerships with many other regional carriers.

Earlier this year, Ural Airlines carried its 25 millionth passenger.
