Sberbank analysts note the rapid recovery of the Russian aviation industry. If the current conditions and volumes of air transportation within the country remain, then by the end of 2021, the "dock-like" indicator of 2019 will be surpassed by 12%.

According to the press service of Sber, in six months the number of non-cash transactions for purchasing air tickets in Russia exceeded the same indicator in 2019 by 35%, and in 2020, when the most stringent restrictions were in force, by 62%. The reasons for this growth were measures to stimulate domestic tourism and subsidize air tickets.

Passenger traffic in the southern direction exceeded the “dock-like” figures already in the first eight months of 2021. Anapa Airport handled 83% more passengers than in 2019, Sochi Airport - 65%. The same amount - 65% more - increased passenger traffic in the air harbor of Kaliningrad.

 Anatoly Popov, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of Sberbank, noted that in general, at the end of 8 months of 2021, the volume of domestic air transportation increased by 72,2% and by 20,1%, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2020 and 2019, reaching 59,1 million passengers.
