About Award

National air transport award Wings of Russia named after Evgeny Chibirev is almost a quarter of a century, and all these years it has been reflecting the realities of Russian civil aviation, developing and changing along with it. 2020 turned out to be absolutely unprecedented for both world and Russian civil aviation. We have faced and gone through economic crises many times, but this time the crisis turned out to be much deeper and was caused by a whole complex of reasons that arose as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Civil aviation was at the forefront of the strike, quarantine measures almost nullified international traffic and significantly reduced domestic ones.

The crisis is far from over and the trials will continue. Nevertheless, the Wings of Russia Award Organizing Committee considers it not only possible, but also necessary to sum up the results of this most difficult year, to highlight and encourage the best.
