"Express Primorye" will replace "Aeroexpress" in regional traffic

From March 1, the Far East company Primorya Express will carry out rail transportation on the coastal Aeroexpress route. Such an agreement was reached at a meeting chaired by the Governor of the Primorsky Territory, Vladimir Miklushevsky.

As reported on January 19, 2015 in EastRussia, due to unprofitableness, the Aeroexpress company ceases to operate in Vladivostok.

One of the reasons given by Aeroexpress is the unresolved issue of compensation for losses of 130 million rubles received while working in Vladivostok in 2014. Aeroexpress executive director Alexei Sorokin said in a January 19 press release that "We have not received compensation and subsidies from the regional authorities in Vladivostok".

At the same time, the vice-governor of the Primorsky Territory Vasily Usoltsev said a few days later: “The Aeroexpress company in Vladivostok could apply for a subsidy from the regional budget. However, the company's management did not take any steps for this. In order to qualify for compensation for losses, Aeroexpress had to become a voluntary participant in the regulated market, that is, submit documents to the FAS for inclusion of the company in the register of natural monopolies ".

The company's press service did not respond to an official request from EastRussia asking why Aeroexpress did not submit documents to the FAS and what steps were taken by Aeroexpress to receive compensation for losses incurred by the company for two weeks.

As for the change in the cost of transportation, it was calculated by the Tariff Department of the Primorsky Territory. Experts put forward a proposal - the cost should be 23 rubles for ten passenger kilometers. The cost of ten passenger kilometers on the Aeroexpress route was 22 rubles. So, for example, the price of a trip from Vladivostok to Artem will be 80. Compared to the previous Aeroexpress fares, the increase for passengers will be 10 rubles, according to the official website of the Primorye government.
