S7 Group may create a new low-cost airline in Russia and is negotiating with Airbus and Boeing on aircraft leasing. S7 Airlines does not plan to change the current business model and switch to the low-cost segment.

The Canary Islands says its new airline backed by hoteliers and operated by One Airways will now be called Lattitude Hub.

Moov Airways CEO Alvaro Nogueira de Oliveira says initial operations from summer 2022 will consist of short-haul flights out of Lugano with DHC8 and/or E-Jets. The carrier aims to introduce long-haul, low-cost flights thereafter with its eye on the A321XLR. Moov aims to roll out its funding plan, a Security Token Offer, later in 2021, as well as secure aircraft.
