UTair Joins ARC

UTair (UT/298) has joined ARC as a participating carrier, effective with sales on February 2, 2008 (PED 02/08/09).

UTair (formerly named "Tyumenaviatrans") is a leader in the Russian aviation services market and is one of the four largest helicopter operators in the word. Currently, UTair operates nearly 150 scheduled flights daily to/from Moscow, serving more than 35 destinations including Samara, Ufa, Baku, Tyumen and Krasnoyarsk. UTair operates Boeing 737-500, ATR-42, ATR-72, Tupolev-154, Tupolev-134 and Antonov-24 aircraft.

UTair is displayed in Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre and Worldspan and is offering a 5% sales commission on published fares to ARC-accredited agencies & CTDs.

UTair has elected the General Concurrence method of agent appointment whereby all ARC-accredited agencies and corporate travel departments are automatically appointed as agents of UTair. Initially, UTair will be accepting cash as the only form of payment through ARC.
