Aeroflot is still considered the de facto national airline of Russia. It is 51%-owned by the Russian Government, as of June 2011.The company completely owns Donavia since early 2007, when it boosted its participation in the Rostov-on-Don–based airline —then-named Aeroflot-Don— from 51% to 100%. Aeroflot has embarked on a fleet modernisation program, extensive route restructuring, and an image overhaul. The airline joined SkyTeam in April 2006, becoming the 10th member of the alliance. //Wikipedia
