Lidings represents Flydubai in Russia

Lidings, a leading legal counsel to foreign businesses in Russia, continues to expand aviation practice by adding key international air carriers to its client list. The firm has recently been chosen by United Arab Emirates company Flydubai as its official legal advisor on Russian law matters.

Lidings has accumulated substantial experience in advising full-service international airlines operating in Russia on a wide spectrum of legal matters. The firm whose client list boasts major market players Turkish Airlines and Ryanair focuses on a number of issues particularly important for the industry and regularly updates clients on legislative developments that might affect their operations in Russia. Flydubai engaged Lidings to advise on migration requirements for its aircraft crews in Russia. The project involved filing of requests with FSS of Russia and Ministry of Transport to obtain clarifications concerning visa regime for crew members of international airlines.

Flydubai is the first low-cost air carrier based in Dubai International airport. The company has significantly expanded the route network since its establishment in 2008. It is currently flying to over fifteen destinations in Russia and the CIS as well as numerous cities in Asia. The company follows a consistent growth strategy: it has recently confirmed its intentions to purchase 111 Boeing airplanes and open a specialized division offering premium level client services.

“Lidings traditionally focuses on providing legal support to foreign companies as they enter the Russian market, and aviation practice is a great priority for us”, partner Andrey Zelenin comments. “The volume of global passenger traffic increased substantially over the past few years. Healthy competition is largely stimulated by the growing number of low-cost carriers, and hopefully Russia will not become an exception. We are glad to witness our clients’ rapid market development and we are committed to support them across all key practice areas in Russia”.
