The prospects for opening the borders of Europe and other foreign countries for flights remain unclear. This was during a meeting with the head of Aeroflot, Vitaly Savelyev, said President Vladimir Putin.

According to him, it is not clear what the partners will do in many countries of the world, including Europe, since they cannot even figure out among themselves. It is also unclear when they will begin to open their borders and territories to third-country nationals, including Russians.

The head of Aeroflot said that the aviation industry was faced with a very serious crisis: in April, transportation fell by 95%, seats were loaded by 33%. Now the situation is gradually leveling out to make flights profitable. The airline intends to abandon the chess seating of passengers.

According to Savelyev, quite a lot of foreign companies have resumed international transport. He noted that if agreements were reached to resume air traffic, then a real recovery of up to 80% in international traffic will occur by December, and by the end of March next year it will be possible to reach the level of 2019.
