On April 28th the first flight from Simferopol since 2017 was greeted in the airport of Kurgan, and from May 01st the air carrier launches a summer flight plan from Kurgan to Sochi. Both routes of Siberia Airlines (Kurgan – Simferopol and Kurgan - Sochi – Kurgan) entered the subsidized list in 2021.
