For air transportation from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow with Aeroflot are ready to compete two airlines

The airline "Orenburg Airlines" is studying the Sakhalin direction through Novosibirsk, said the general director of the airport "Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk" Nikita Polonsky.

“Rossiya Airlines wants to enter our market, they have made us a request for the summer period for the frequencies that Transaero has previously performed - 4 flights a week,” he said.

As he said, while it is a question of flights of "Russia" in the coming summer, but "if the passenger traffic will be stable and will grow, they, certainly, will remain". Flights on this route "Russia" is going to perform on the plane "Boeing-767-300" or "Boeing-777-200".

Another company, Orenburg Airlines, according to its data, is now studying the relevance of passenger traffic from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow via Novosibirsk. “If they make such a decision, I think that this trend will also be in demand,” the general director believes. In his opinion, even transportation from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Novosibirsk and back will be in demand, as businessmen from Siberia are increasingly interested in Sakhalin and “often fly here,” Interfax reports.

N. Polonsky said that with the bankruptcy of "Transaero" planes to Moscow and back fly "completely clogged passengers." He gave an example that when Transaero was working on planes departing from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, then the average empty 15-20% passenger seats. Now you need to buy tickets to Moscow and back in advance, because, for example, a week before departure, it is problematic to buy them even in business class.

"People are already flying from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow via Khabarovsk and Vladivostok, and these flights are also clogged," the general director stated.

As it was reported, last autumn with the bankruptcy of Transaero it was impossible to buy tickets from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to Moscow and back. They simply did not exist, and tickets in the business class "round-trip" reached 140 thousand rubles.

After the appeal of the regional authorities to the management of Aeroflot and the Federal Air Transport Agency, Aeroflot put the Boeing-777-300 aircraft on this direction (the airliner accommodates 100 more passengers than other companies operating in this direction) and increased the frequency of flights from five to seven a week. In summer, it will double the frequency of flights (up to two flights per day).
