Aeroflot wants to abandon flat tariffs to the Far East
Aeroflot Airlines plans to gradually move away from “flat” fares and not to make cheap flights to the Far East, as well as Simferopol and Kaliningrad due to the loss-making of such flights.
As stated Interfax Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev, “flat” tariffs place a serious burden on the economy of the airline. He called this mechanism a non-market measure.
According to Vitaliy Saveliev, “flat”, that is, tariffs that do not change during the year, “Aeroflot” introduced in 2015 as a temporary measure to increase the mobility of the population. However, this mechanism turned out to be unprofitable - an hour of flight is cheaper than a taxi ride in Moscow. At the same time, flights are not subsidized by states; Aeroflot covers losses from them at the expense of more profitable routes.
“What are we counting on? That the regions will sooner or later begin to live their own lives, ”said Vitaliy Savelyev.
Now, according to flat tariffs, Aeroflot and its subsidiary Rossiya fly from Moscow to Vladivostok, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Khabarovsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Magadan, Simferopol and Kaliningrad.
