"Bugulma is the air gate of the south-east of Tatarstan and has a beneficial, and even unique, geographical location. Within its attraction zone are the Republic of Bashkortostan, Orenburg, Samara and Ulyanovsk region. Therefore, the airline has a huge potential for development, attracting passenger and cargo traffic from these regions," said Linar Zakirov.
In order not to lose the vector of development of the airline, it is necessary to modernize the Bugulma airport infrastructure – to reconstruct the runway, including replacement of lighting and navigation equipment. At the moment only haul-type aircraft Yak-40, AN-24, CRJ200 can land on the Bugulma runway.
