Federal Air Transport Agency: Russia will start international flights from the CIS

Federal Air Transport Agency: Russia will start international flights from the CIS

The head of the Federal Air Transport Agency suggested resuming international flights, first to the CIS countries, and then to other countries. Each direction will be considered individually.

As I found out "Merchant”, Deputy Minister of Transport, Head of the Federal Air Transport Agency Alexander Neradko sent proposals to open international flights to the Russian government. The discovery will take place on the principle of reciprocity, and each country will be considered depending on the epidemiological situation.

At the same time, airline representatives believe that there is no reason to expect a fast opening of communication even with CIS countries. The fact is that the decision to resume transportation is taken by the operational headquarters, not the Federal Air Transport Agency. Moreover, the resumption of communication with neighboring countries will still not give airlines the necessary passenger flow, and summer will in any case be unprofitable.

According to the carriers, it would be more logical to restore flights to European countries, where the incidence is significantly lower than in the CIS. However, in the countries of the European Union, tourists from Russia are not too expected: the countries that open their borders from July 1 are not yet ready to receive tourists from the USA, Russia and Brazil.
