The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation commented on the reports on the rise in the price of air tickets to popular destinations. According to the department, these data were not based on the entire market, which means that they cannot be regarded as the real state of affairs.

According to the press service of the ministry, several large aggregators for the search for air tickets reported about rise in price of flights up to 120%... At the same time, according to the calculations of the Ministry of Transport, the price for several flights at once, including those mentioned earlier, on the contrary, decreased compared to June 2019.

Most of all the tickets from Moscow to Rostov-on-Don fell in price - by 22%. Flights on the Moscow - Kemerovo route are now costing 18% less. The prices for flights to Tomsk and Syktyvkar decreased by 14% and 12%, respectively. You can fly from the capital to Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk by 10% cheaper. And a 4% decrease in prices on the Moscow - Nizhnekamsk route was recorded.

Also, adds the Ministry of Transport, the already made sales in April-June 2021 were estimated by airlines at 7% cheaper than in the same period of 2019. The decrease in cost was confirmed by Aeroflot, Pobeda, Russia and S7. In addition, the department recalled that in a number of areas, tickets are being sold at flat and subsidized fares.
