JSC "Ural Airlines" originated from Sverdlovsk United Aviation Division, which had been established based on Sverdlovsk Koltsovo Airport back in 1943. The brand URAL AIRLINES exists since 1993, and by 2006 the airline has carried over 1 000 000 passengers. All our flights were operating on Russian aircraft.

Since 2006, the company has focused on the aviation and maintenance bases development. At that time the air fleet renewal program was launched: the aircraft An-24, Tu-134, Tu-156 and Il-86 were replaced by Airbus A320 Family. In 2012, the company opened its own Simulator Center for Airbus 320 pilots. Moreover, in 2014 the building of a hangar complex was completed at Koltsovo Airport, allowing us to provide various maintenance services.
