The cost of air travel in Russia will continue to grow in the 2020 year. This was warned by the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEWT). The reason was that the carriers have not yet received the promised 23 billion rubles for the jump in fuel prices in 2018, the proposed damper mechanism does not work.

Over the nine months of this year, Russian airlines have incurred losses of 9,7 billion rubles. As they write "News", carriers have increased spending on airport services, wages, compulsory insurance, rental and leasing of ships, and the price of fuel has also increased.

In this case, damping mechanism, according to which airlines from 1 this August should receive compensation from the budget for a sharp increase in the price of fuel, does not work. The association notes that the jump in aviation fuel prices in the 2018 year will affect the growth of prices for flights in subsequent periods.

Booking services note that tickets for the first quarter of 2020 of the year have already risen in price by 3-18% depending on the destination. According to them, the average check for economy class round-trip flights in Russia in January-March increased to 12 231 rubles, and abroad - to 26 353 rubles.

Russian airlines have offered the Cabinet a new option to contain ticket prices. Carriers announced the possibility of using a damper - mechanism treasury compensation in the event of sharp jumps in the cost of kerosene. Vladimir Putin instructed to allocate money from the government reserve fund for compensation by November 1, 2019. However, the Ministry of Transport said that there is no money for this in the budget now, so carriers will receive subsidies only in 2020 year
