Aeroflot began selling tickets at flat fares in the Far Eastern Federal District
Aeroflot opened the sale of tickets at “flat” fares for the 2020 year to the cities of the Far East. This happened after the main parameters of the program of such tariffs were agreed with the Russian government.
Now tickets are available from Moscow to Vladivostok, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Khabarovsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Magadan. Their cost is the same: 15 660 rubles one way and 26 100 round-trip at Aeroflot, 13 770 one way and 22 950 round-trip from Russia.
According to the press service of the airline, prices rose by the level of inflation. The reason for the increase was the increase in basic fuel costs.
“Ticket prices in these areas are still significantly lower than the cost, since they carry exclusively social significance,” the airline said.
Flights to the cities of the Far East will be operated by Aeroflot and its subsidiary airline Russia. Moreover, in the autumn-winter schedule, Russia will fly to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk every day, and Aeroflot will operate seven flights a week.
Earlier, deputies demanded The Ministry of Transport has proposals for solving the problem of “flat” tariffs. All-Russian Passenger Association turned to the head of the Ministry of Transport, Eugene Dietrich, with a request to solve the problem with air tickets.
Aeroflot sells most of the tickets to the Far Eastern Federal District at a “flat” fare, regularly complaining about the unprofitableness of this scheme - it is not subsidized from the budget, but is a social burden on the carrier.
