It is planned that these changes will be introduced in the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation from 25 December 2013 No. 1242 "On the granting of subsidies from the federal budget to air transport organizations for the regional air transportation of passengers on the territory of the Russian Federation and the formation of a regional route network of the Russian Federation, service of the Chukchi administration.

The emergence of new participants in this market should lead to healthy competition and affect the pricing policy of existing companies. At the same time today, due to the high cost of air travel, a number of categories of citizens need to subsidize the purchase of airline tickets from the state. We are negotiating with various federal agencies and departments to organize the sale of discount tickets in the district along the routes connecting Chukotka and the Far East, ”said the governor of the district.
