Russian air carriers are asking for a review of the recommendation of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare on the half-load of passenger aircraft cabins. In their opinion, this will lead to a sharp jump in ticket prices and reduce flights.

According to Kommersant, the government is on the side of airline companies, but in an epidemic, the opinion of sanitary doctors can be decisive. So far, they only recommend limiting seats, but soon this measure may become mandatory.

The Russian Association of Air Transport Operators appealed to the Federal Ministry of Transport with a request to initiate at the government level consideration of the issue of canceling the recommendations of Rosoptrebnadzor. Carriers believe that those measures that are already being taken to protect against COVID-19 are enough to ensure safety.

At airports, passenger thermometry is carried out; air conditioning and ventilation systems operate. In addition, in April, due to the reduction in passenger traffic, aircraft cabins are already filled on average by 37%, this allows people to sit down at a safe distance from each other.

They insist in Rortortebnadzor - recommendations are designed to preserve the health of the crew and passengers. Depending on the changes in the epidemiological situation, they can be adjusted.
