Russian Post and Aeroflot will increase the volume of postal air transportation
As part of EEF-2021, Russian Post and Aeroflot signed a memorandum to expand cooperation and increase the volume of air mail traffic. The document was signed by the heads of the companies Mikhail Poluboyarinov and Maxim Akimov.
According to the press service of the Russian Post, this will reduce delivery times, simplify formalities and increase the volume of postal shipments, especially in the segment of online orders delivery. The parties also intend to increase the economic efficiency of transportation by expanding the places of international postal exchange (MMPO) at Sheremetyevo and other airports in the country. To do this, they will increase and modernize production areas, introduce new technologies to speed up the processing of international mail and launch joint transit operations.
Aeroflot and Russian Post also plan to expand the geography of postal transportation within the framework of interline agreements. Thus, it will be possible to transport mail on the aircraft of Aeroflot partners to places where the airline does not operate its own flights.
According to Maxim Akimov, General Director of Russian Post, cooperation with Aeroflot began almost 20 years ago, in 2002. More than 380 flights of the airline are involved in the delivery of items daily, and in 2020 the volume of mail delivery exceeded 17 thousand tons. The signing of the memorandum will bring the quality of services to a new level.
As Mikhail Poluboyarinov, General Director of Aeroflot, noted, during the pandemic, the company successfully coped with the strategic task and retained the volume of mail traffic. Today, cooperation with the Russian Post is entering a new stage.
