Pasifika Air of New Zealand is back on track after the announcement of a quarantine-free travel bubble with the Cook Islands from 17 May 2021. The startup aims to fly by 2021 end, once the AOC is issued.

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.

Super Air Jet has yet to secure its Indonesian AOC, says the Transportation Ministry, as the paperwork is still being processed at the DGCA. The airline will operate with the IATA callsign IU and ICAO code SJV. The carrier is reported to have leased 20 aircraft.

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