In 1921, shortly after the end of civil war in European Russia, the new government established the Chief Administration of the Civil Air Fleet to oversee new air transport projects. One of its first acts was to help found Deutsch-Russische Luftverkehrs A.G. (Deruluft), a German-Russian joint venture to provide air transport from Russia to the West. Domestic air service began around the same time, when Dobrolyot (Добролёт, English translation: "voluntary flight" a short form of "The Russian Society of Voluntary Air Fleet") was established on 9 February 1923. It started operations on 15 July 1923 between Moscow and Nizhni Novgorod.

On 25 February 1932 all civil aviation activities were consolidated under the administration of the Head Directorate of Civil Air Fleet (Главное управление Гражданского воздушного флота (ГУ ГВФ)), and the official abbreviated operating name of the fleet was determined to be Aeroflot.[9] International flights started in 1937; before that date they had been carried out by Deruluft.
