The mechanism of flat tariffs for the Far Eastern Federal District intend to change
The mechanism of operation of Aeroflot’s flat tariffs needs to be reviewed. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Transport Alexander Yurchik.
According to the official, on the one hand, this scheme creates favorable conditions for passengers, but on the other, it is unprofitable for the air carrier. Securing flat tariffs is a significant burden for Aeroflot: rising fuel prices, airport charges, and other factors influence it. In addition, flat tariffs impede the development of competition in the Far East.
According to TASSwhen the mechanism will undergo modernization has not yet been decided, however, the Ministry of Transport intends to do this work. The main shareholder of Aeroflot, the Russian government, has already thought about this.
The department admits that the cost of such tickets can be indexed to the inflation rate for two years. Now a flight from Moscow to Khabarovsk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, to Magadan and vice versa costs 25 thousand rubles. The price has not changed since 2017.
Now, in order to solve the problem of unprofitable flat tariffs, the Ministry of Transport of Russia is working on a transportation model between Moscow and Far Eastern cities, in which the air carrier can sell part of the tickets at a commercially reasonable rate. This means that part of the tickets to the Far East may rise in price.
Earlier, State Duma Deputy Chairman Irina Yarovaya appealed to the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Government Maxim Akimov with a request to initiate a decision by the Cabinet on support flat rate programs for the Far East. The situation also alarmed the State Duma deputies. They demanded The Ministry of Transport has proposals for solving the problem. 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.
