The rules of air transportation in the Far East can be reconsidered

Ministry of Development proposes to change the requirements for interregional passenger transportation in the Far East, subsidized from the federal budget to make them accessible to more people. This proposal was made by the First Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Osipov, at a meeting of the government commission on transport in the framework of the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum.

“Our position is based on the fact that the territory of the region is large, therefore, some types of restrictions on routes need to be revised,” Osipov said. For example, given the long distances, it is necessary to increase the maximum range of subsidized routes from 1,3 thousand to 3,7 thousand kilometers, and also - to abolish the restriction on passenger traffic along the route of 10 thousand people per year. “In most of the Far Eastern regions, there are no roads at all, and an airplane for people is the only way to go somewhere,” the deputy minister said.

Proposals voiced in Krasnoyarsk by the Ministry of the East Development and other departments, by decision of the government commission, should be worked out by April 1.
