Far East snapped up affordable tickets to Moscow
In the DFO regions there are practically no air tickets in economy class for the summer period.
Residents of the DFO regions bought up almost all the tickets in economy class for flights to Moscow for the summer period. As the demand increases during the holidays, the Far-Easterners announce their hunt in advance, as a result in May there are practically no tickets to the capital for the summer.
“By tradition, the cost of tickets from the cities of the Far East to the western part of the country on the eve of summer holidays has increased. Despite the fact that the program of subsidized transportation was extended, there are no longer any discount tickets for the summer. There are practically no regular tickets to the economy class, ”said Valentina Aseeva, executive director of the Far Eastern Regional Branch of the Russian Union of Travel Industry, to EastRussia.
You can fly from Vladivostok to Moscow in May for 13 771 ruble, in June for 15 165, in July you can find a ticket for 10 482, and in August for 13 200 rubles. However, it will have to make a transfer or two, will have to fly without luggage, and travel time may take more than a day. Direct flights are performed by Aeroflot and Russia, while there are no economy class tickets for May, for June you can find several tickets for 13 200 in the economy class of Rossiya airline and as many for 15 thousand from Aeroflot ". In July and August there are more tickets at such prices, but they can be bought up at the beginning of summer. A “comfort premium” ticket for Aeroflot will cost 63 thousand rubles, a business optium ticket - at 143 thousand rubles, and a “business maximum” - at 112 thousand rubles. "Russia" prices are slightly lower: 68 thousand in the "business opium" in June and July and 53 thousand in August. With return flights the same situation.
In Khabarovsk, the situation is worse: at the beginning of June, a couple of “economy” tickets remained for 13 200 rubles, the second half of the month is more accessible for flights - there are tickets to “Russia”, but Aeroflot will cost at least 63 thousand rubles per comfort-class. There are no tickets available for July, you can fly away for 13 200 only from July 21 and only "Russia". The same situation is in August: there is no “economy”, and the “business optimum” costs at least 41 thousand rubles.
“Flying back and forth costs under 100 thousand rubles, is this acceptable? Of course, you can catch cheaper tickets seven days before departure, there is one place, but this is not a solution. The problem is that for the summer period in the Far East the demand for flights sharply increases, while the number of sides remains unchanged. In addition, there is no alternative - only Aeroflot and Russia fly directly, in Khabarovsk you can still find tickets from Nordwind, but this airline flies only five times a week, and in other DFO regions there is no such choice, ”Valentina notes. Aseeva.
From mid-June, you can still fly from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for 13 200 rubles by Russia, there are no tickets for Aeroflot, there are no tickets for economy in July, and the class above will cost at least 60 thousand rubles. Few tickets at affordable prices still remain for the second mid-August.
Only “Russia” flies from Magadan to the capital. For June, a very small number of tickets remain in the "economy" for 13 200, a class above will cost at least 60 thousand rubles. There are no “economy” tickets for July, and there are still enough tickets for August.
From Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow to fly “house-keeper” in the first half of June will not work, and the remaining business optimum will cost almost 76 thousand rubles. For the second half of the month there are tickets for 13 200 rubles. The same picture is in July, but there are no problems with August.
Direct flights from Yakutsk to Moscow are now available from Aeroflot. A ticket for June will cost at least 21 317 rubles, while on such flights, from two to seven tickets are left. In July and August, the minimum price rises to 37 thousand rubles, only in the final days of summer you can buy a ticket for 25 800 rubles.
“Given that this situation arises every year, the question arises: does the Ministry of Transport work for us, is it studying this question and is it going to take any measures? It is easier and cheaper for Far Easterners to fly abroad than to Moscow. At the same time, the demand for western direction among residents of the DFO regions is increasing: people are going to visit relatives and study. Workers go to the Far East from the west for large construction sites, shift workers — the flights are loaded, and no one takes action, ”said Valentina Aseeva.
