Tulpar Air was based in Kazan (Tatarstan), Russia, and was established in late 2004 by absorbing the airline Atlas which specialized in helicopter transport. It has its own maintenance base in Kazan. In 2010 it was Russia's least punctual airline with 21% of flights delayed.[2] Before bankruptcy, TAIF was the majority shareholder.[3]

In January 2014 Tulpar Air was grounded by Russia's air transport regulator Rosaviatsiya due to lapses in standards and issues relating to maintenance and crews, after an unscheduled inspection.[4][5]
