Former Zhukovsky Airport head Solodilin replaces Klyucharev as CEO of Red Wings

MOSCOW. July 13 (Interfax) - The board of directors of Red Wings on Monday appointed Yevgeny Solodilin, who until recently headed Zhukovsky Airport operating company JSC Ramport Aero, to replace Yevgeny Klyucharev as CEO of the Russian airline, the company said.

Solodilin sees his job in the new position as "further developing Red Wings' ambitious project to create the benchmark operator of Russian aircraft."

"Of course, the airline's strategy will be adjusted both in terms of fleet and in terms of the development of the route network. The most important objective is to prepare well for the operation of the MC-21 airliner. I also think it is important to return to operating the Tu-204, there are still many promising international and regional niches," Solodilin was quoted as saying in the press release.
