Aeroflot set to list in London

City A.M. Reporter
AEROFLOT, the state-controlled Russian airline, is planning a secondary listing on the London Stock Exchange followed by a placement of around 13 per cent of its stock in 2012-2013, reports claimed yesterday.

The company, in which the Independent newspaper owner Alexander Lebedev has a 15 per cent stake, is on the list of companies the Russian government is keen to part-privatise and has had a share placement on its agenda for some time.
