Airlines ask for subsidies from the Russian government
To avoid bankruptcies, airlines are asking the Russian government for subsidies to compensate for part of the costs from December 2020 to June 2021. Due to the coronavirus, the volume of traffic remains extremely low - the decline was up to 46%, and if this situation continues, the carriers may go bankrupt.
As they write "Ведомости”, Representatives of the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEVT) addressed the Department of the Ministry of Transport. The industry organization includes all of the country's largest airlines. According to the organization, about 53 billion rubles are needed to support carriers.
In 2020, the Russian government allocated 20,95 billion rubles to help airlines. Carriers from this amount received 365, and later - 685 rubles for each lost passenger. AEVT plans to use new subsidies for salaries for aircraft personnel, equipment leasing and payment for parking of idle ships. The total operating losses, according to the calculations of AEVT, may amount to 2020 billion rubles by the end of 200.
