Alternative carriers will reduce the price of air travel

The departure of Transaero not only marked the problem of monopolized Far Eastern routes, such as Moscow-Anadyr, and others, but also significantly affected the cost of air tickets for ordinary passengers of the Far East

Alternative carriers will reduce the price of air travel
The problem of cost, as well as an elementary shortage of available air tickets on flights between Vladivostok and Moscow, has to be solved at the governor's level.

“I intend to appeal to the management and owners of S7 and UTair with a proposal to consider the possibility of organizing direct flights between Vladivostok and Moscow on wide-body aircraft,” said Primorsky Territory Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky, whose words are quoted in the press service.

V.Miklushevsky noted that the arrival of alternative carriers will increase competition and reduce prices for air tickets.
According to the head of the region, after consultations with the management of the company "Aeroflot" and Rosaviatsiya, tickets for the next flights have already appeared on sale at an affordable price.

Since 29 October on the route Vladivostok-Moscow instead of the Airbus-330 flights will be performed by Boeing-777, which accommodates 100 more passengers.

“I personally looked through search engines for tickets from Vladivostok to Moscow at normal prices, 11 thousand rubles. Previously, they were only on sale from November 12, and back from Moscow to Vladivostok only November 16. This morning, tickets for October 30 were on sale, ”V. Miklushevsky added.

Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky also notes that the number of flights on the route Vladivostok-Moscow should be increased.
“Winter holidays are ahead, the passenger traffic will increase significantly these days. People should not be held hostage to these difficult situations, and the authorities should quickly deal with them. I would like to thank the Minister of Transport Maxim Sokolov and the General Director of Aeroflot, Vitaly Savelyev, for the prompt resolution of the problem, ”the head of the region added.

As reported, the termination of the sale of tickets "Transaero" created a serious problem of sending passengers from Vladivostok to Moscow. In Primorye, there was a shortage of affordable economy-class tickets on the route Vladivostok - Moscow, which were sold out until mid-November.
