Russian airlines are concerned about the loss of employees as part of the mobilization, the newspaper “Kommersant” reported on Friday, September 23.

Sources at several Russian airlines have expressed concern that 50 to 80% of airline employees could be drafted, the newspaper reported.

Airline lawyers are drafting requests to exempt employees from military service, but the newspaper says it’s not yet clear where to send those requests.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in the country on Wednesday to replenish the ranks of troops in Ukraine.

Within a day of this announcement, employees of five airlines and ten airports received summons for military service, Kommersant reported.

Russia’s largest airline “Aeroflot” admits that more than half of the company’s employees could potentially be drafted.

Most of the pilots of Russian airlines were trained in the army and are reserve officers. Others may be drafted because they have just completed their military service.
