Aeroflot-Nord was a Russian airline that operated from 2004 to 2009. It was a subsidiary of the larger Russian carrier, Aeroflot. The airline primarily operated domestic flights within Russia, as well as some international flights to neighboring countries.
However, Aeroflot-Nord gained significant attention in 2008 when one of its flights, Flight 821, crashed near the city of Perm, Russia. The crash resulted in the deaths of all 88 passengers and crew onboard.
Following the crash, Aeroflot-Nord faced increased scrutiny and ultimately had its operational rights suspended by the Russian aviation authorities in 2009. The airline was then dissolved and its remaining assets were absorbed by its parent company, Aeroflot.
The crash of Flight 821 and subsequent suspension of Aeroflot-Nord highlighted safety concerns within the airline industry in Russia and led to increased regulation and oversight in the country's aviation sector.
