It is a bird. It is a plane… well, it kind of is a plane, but is that a man painted on the tail? It sure is and he is flying.

Unfortunately, the airline doesn’t technically exist and was wrapped in with Kuban Airlines. The plus is Kuban is still flying the Sky Express 737s with their old and colorful livery.

Sky Express started operations in 2007, but went out of business in 2011. It was based at Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow.

It was the first Russian low-cost airline and operated a fleet of Boeing 737-300, 737-500 and Airbus A319.
