Dobrolet has signed a direct agreement with Boeing for the supply of 16 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, a representative of the Russian low-cost airline told Interfax, quoting the airline's head, Andrei Kalmykov.

The planes should be delivered in 2017-2018. The deposit was paid on Monday.

"This again confirms our plans for development. The management is doing everything possible in order to resume operating activity as soon as possible," the airline representative told Interfax.

On August 4, Dobrolet suspended flights to Simferopol and Volgograd over the sanctions imposed on it by the EU. The company said that passengers who have bought return tickets to Simferopol (until September 15, inclusive) and to Volgograd (until August 20 inclusive) will be switched to Orenburg Airlines, Aeroflot's other 100% subsidiary, with the date and time on the tickets to be observed.
