In October, Russian internet company Mail.Ru said it had agreed a joint venture with Alipay, the mobile payments arm of Alibaba Group, along with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and two other Russian partners.
Cainiao and Pochta are jointly leasing seven freighters from Aviastar-Tu to fly to the cities of Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk on a daily basis.
Aviastar-Tu, which also operates regular freighter services for DHL, has a fleet of three B757-200 freighters and four Tupolev Tu-204-100s and operates principally out of Moscow’s Ramenskoye Airport.
