MOSCOW, January 5./TASS/. Wage arrears of bankrupt Transaero Airlines exceed 600 million rubles ($ 8.930 million), a spokesperson for the Russian Investigative Committee’s transport division in Moscow told TASS on Saturday.
Transaero has debts to more than 7,000 of its former personnel. “More than 1,500 people have been questioned as aggrieved persons,” Natalya Fedorova said.
Earlier reports said the airlines debts to 7,413 staff were 290 million rubles.
Transaero stopped flights in the autumn of 2015 because of a debt of 250 billion rubles ($ 3.7 bln). Somewhat later, the Russian transport authorities revoked its air operator certificate. It was declared bankrupt in September 2017.
