Additional money will be allocated for subsidized flights
The Russian government will allocate an additional five billion rubles for subsidized air tickets for the Far East. The first tranche, calculated for 2021, ended in a few days.
According to TASS, in the Far East there is a high demand for passenger air travel. Therefore, the discount air tickets ran out very quickly. According to the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexei Chekunkov, additional funding for the flight program will increase the volume of traffic by almost three times.
The sale of discounted air tickets will last until February. At this time, the airlines will receive the second tranche of subsidies. The first program limit was reached in just 13 days.
In November, the Federal Air Transport Agency approved list of subsidized routes for 2021. The list includes several domestic destinations, flights to Crimea and Sevastopol. Due to the high demand for discounted tickets, the authorities offered to increase funding last year six billion rubles... This year, the volume of funding for the program of subsidizing flights to the Far Eastern Federal District amounted to 5,8 billion rubles.
