The problem of passenger traffic Sakhalin - Moscow is gaining momentum

The problem of passenger traffic from the Sakhalin Region to Moscow occurs every summer season, said the Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Sakhalin Region Vladimir Degtyarev. Nobody expected it this year - but 14 operating Sakhalin-Moscow flights a week again fail to cope with the number of people who want to buy tickets at a “flat fare”

The problem of passenger traffic Sakhalin - Moscow is gaining momentum
Residents of the Sakhalin region once again faced the problem of flying to Moscow in the summer due to the lack of tickets, the cost of which was 70 thousand rubles in one direction, the Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Sakhalin Region Vladimir Degtyarev said on Thursday to deputies of the Sakhalin Regional Duma.

“The problem of passenger traffic to Moscow arises every summer season. This year we did not expect it, since today 14 flights to Moscow are flying weekly for Aeroflot and Rossiya airlines. However, we have new groups of people who want to fly. Therefore, at present it is possible to purchase tickets only at the end of July, and passengers are offered to fly either in business class or VIP economy class for 70 thousand rubles. “Flat fares” are there, but they are bought up several months before the flight, only VIP seats remain, ”explained Degtyarev.

As it was reported earlier, last fall, the bankruptcy of Transaero Airlines complicated the transportation of Sakhalin to the mainland, Interfax notes.

Then economy class tickets could not be obtained, they were bought up several months in advance, and the cost of a ticket in business class was 140 thousand rubles in both directions. At the request of the regional authorities, Aeroflot then increased the frequency of flights from 5 to 7 once a week and installed large aircraft on this route. In the spring of this year, the company Russia (a subsidiary of Aeroflot) began flying from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow.
