Russian airlines will receive compensation for losses incurred due to the suspension of flights to China. They plan to allocate money from the reserve fund of the Russian government.

As the RIA News, The Ministry of Finance agreed with the amount of damage that carriers have calculated, it is 1,6 billion rubles. But until a final decision on payments has been made, the timing of receipt of money by airlines is unknown.

As for road transport, compensation for them has not yet been discussed. Due to the spread of coronavirus, all scheduled flights from Russia to China have been closed since February 1. The only exceptions were Aeroflot flights to Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Since February 14 charters suspended airlines in this direction.
