Flight Blagoveshchensk-Moscow was left without one of the carriers
As the press service of the government of the Amur region reports, on Monday the current situation was discussed by the general director of Blagoveshchensk airport Valery Shlegel and the minister of transport and construction of the region Andrei Tyaglo.

"The current situation is associated with a low load of seats (of the order of 30-40%) on flights of this airline. Companies are hard to cost effectively perform transportation. However, the company is not going to leave the market, and the restriction applies only to the winter period. According to preliminary information, "Icarus" forms the schedule, which provides for a flight connection between Blagoveshchensk and Moscow, starting from April 24 ", - V. Schlegel cited in the message.

As already reported by IA "EastRussia", the airline "Icarus" among many replaced Transaero, which left the market, operated regular flights on a number of routes to the cities of the Far Eastern Federal District, of which Transaero was the only carrier on three direct routes from Moscow to Anadyr, Blagoveshchensk and Magadan. To ensure uninterrupted air traffic on these air lines, passenger transportation was started by VIM-Avia, UTair and Ikar airlines.
According to the general director of the airport, since August of this year, passenger traffic on the Blagoveshchensk-Moscow-Blagoveshchensk route has decreased, the figure has almost halved compared to last year.

Currently, VIM-Avia and Ural Airlines continue to operate flights in this area. Also, one flight per week is carried out by Siberia Company.

At the same time, because of the traditional decline in passenger traffic in the first decade of January, connected with holidays, the airlines refused some direct flights to Moscow.

As reported, after the departure from the Aeroflot region (the airline Rossiya, which is part of the Aeroflot group, flew to Blagoveshchensk), and in connection with the bankruptcy of Transaero, the authorities of the Amur region are searching for other air carriers that will fly directly from Blagoveshchensk to Moscow and back.

"Russia" canceled flights on this route in May of this year. The airline has operated these flights from August 2014 on a daily basis at Boeing-767-300. The reason for cancellation - “Russia” decided to abandon the operation of aircraft of this type in its fleet, and the runway at Blagoveshchensk Airport does not meet the technical requirements for receiving other types of aircraft used by the airline A320.

At the end of October, the airline "Ikar" opened the sale of tickets for flights Blagoveshchensk-Moscow-Blagoveshchensk, making the schedule until March 2016.
