The new airline will be based at the airport Domodedovo from Moscow. In the first year of activity, Dobrolet will operate 8 aircraft, and in the future the fleet will grow on average with 8 aircraft per year. Only one type of aircraft with one corridor will be used, as it is Boeing 737-800 Next Generation. All aircraft will be configured in one class.

The operational plans show that Dobrolet will operate the first flights in the spring of 2014. For a start, it will fly to the most popular destinations on the European side of Russia. The ticket prices will be on average about 40% lower compared to those of competition.

Aeroflot owns the entire "Dobrolet" stock package and estimates an investment of approximately 100 million dollars in the first 2 years of activity. Vitaly Savelyev, CEO of Aeroflot, has great confidence in the new airline and believes it is of huge importance to Russia.
