The Russian Ministry of Transport plans to increase funding for subsidized air travel to the Far East. It is assumed that the amount will grow by 2,4 billion rubles.

First Deputy Minister of Transport Innokenty Alafinov said in the State Duma that they intend to increase the cost of air transportation for the Far Eastern Federal District annually. As reported TASS, the government proposed an amount of 2,4 billion rubles. This will allow transporting more than eight million passengers.

Earlier, State Duma deputies called for additional subsidies for air travel for the Far East. Parliamentarians proposed to increase funding six billion rubles annually.

This year, the amount of funding for the program to subsidize flights to the Far East amounted to 5,8 billion rubles. At the same time, according to the draft budget, the government plans in 2021 cut subsidies for domestic air travel... This also applies to flights to the Far East and within the Far Eastern Federal District.
