This is the ranking of Russian airlines for 2002 by passenger numbers (taken from a German mag):
1. Aeroflot 5,5mlm
2. Sibir (excl. Vnukovo Airlines) 2,6mln
3. Pulkovo 2mln
4. UTair (former Tyumenaviatrans) 1,24mln
5. Kras Air 1,23m
6. Ural Airlines 702.000
7. Domodedovo Airlines 642.000
8. KMV 580.000
9. Dalavia 540.000
10. Kolavia 454.000
I'd also like to find the RPK figures as these tend to seem higher, cause of the long distances in Russia.
I don't think any airline from other FSU countries has the sort of traffic to beat any of the above airlines. Ukraine Int'l Airlines seems the largest to me, but they've carried only 300.000 passengers in 2001 (according to ATW
's "World Airline Report 2001").
Hope this helps!
