Flights will continue to go up in 2020 year
The cost of air travel in Russia will continue to grow in the 2020 year. This was warned by the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEWT). The reason was that the carriers have not yet received the promised 23 billion rubles for the jump in fuel prices in 2018, the proposed damper mechanism does not work.
For nine months of this year, Russian airlines suffered losses of 9,7 billion rubles. As they write "News", carriers have increased spending on airport services, labor costs, compulsory insurance, rent and leasing of ships, and the price of fuel has risen.
In this case, damping mechanism, according to which airlines from 1 this August should receive compensation from the budget for a sharp increase in the price of fuel, does not work. The association notes that the jump in aviation fuel prices in the 2018 year will affect the growth of prices for flights in subsequent periods.
Booking services note that tickets for the first quarter of 2020 of the year have already risen in price by 3-18% depending on the destination. According to them, the average check for economy class round-trip flights in Russia in January-March increased to 12 231 rubles, and abroad - to 26 353 rubles.
Russian airlines have offered the Cabinet a new option to contain ticket prices. Carriers announced the possibility of using a damper - mechanism treasury compensation in case of sharp jumps in the cost of kerosene. Vladimir Putin ordered before November 1 of 2019 to allocate money from the government reserve fund for compensation. However, the Ministry of Transport stated that there is currently no money for this in the budget, so carriers will receive subsidies only in 2020 year.
