"Rosavia has already been registered. [Vitaly] Vantsev is its general director for the time being," Sergei Chemezov said.
Vantsev, chairman of the board of directors of Moscow's Vnukovo International Airport, was recommended for the job at the company's first meeting in October 2008.
Chemezov said the members of the board of directors had also been appointed. He did not however specify the company's charter capital.
