This is already the third Russian Airline serving direct flights to Sri Lanka. According to the commercial director of the Airline, Mr. I. V. Tretiakov, the first planes are fully booked. This is supported as well by the Russian top tour operators working in partnership with the Red Wings Airline.
Red Wings Airline planes are to switch to regular flights as soon as the accreditation is granted by the Sri Lanka Civil Aviation Authority and gradually increase the number of flights.
