The head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexei Chekunkov, asked forgiveness from the Trans-Baikal people for the fact that subsidized air travel was not organized in the region in 2021. Even the allocation of additional funding of five billion rubles did not allow the Trans-Baikal Territory to be included in the program.

According to IA «Чита.ру», Alexey Chekunkov noted that such a situation could cause disappointment of some of the inhabitants of the Far East. The problem turned out to be that the Aeroflot company, which took away the bulk of the preferential flights, does not fly to Chita and Yakutsk. Because of this, it was not possible to organize subsidized air tickets in these directions.

The minister also noted that the situation was taken into account and this issue was worked out with the Ministry of Transport and the Federal Air Transport Agency. In the future, the regions will receive subsidies based on passenger traffic. A Far Eastern airline will also be able to alleviate the situation, which will be able to provide transport accessibility from anywhere in the Far East, and not only from regional centers to Moscow.
