Bankruptcy "Transaero" and the first effects.

Not yet passed, and day from the moment Rosaviation deprived once the largest in Russia airline "Transaero" air operator certificate, formally forbidding him to carry out activities in fulfillment of passenger traffic. At the moment the bankruptcy of "Transaero" still very early to say, because the correct approach current majority shareholders, the carrier can still be revived, but, nevertheless, the first effects, with increasingly negative, have already begun to be traced.

The first, and perhaps the airplane, a big problem on the part of tens of thousands of passengers is the deficit of flights - with the departure of Transaero, the number of flights for several dozens of air routes has decreased, which ultimately creates great difficulties for passenger transportation in the country. This circumstance was used by several domestic air carriers (their names are not deliberately disclosed by the portal), which intentionally increased the prices for air tickets on several routes, and in addition, because of the actual absence of tickets for flights in the economy class, passengers are in 2- 3 times overpay for the use of business class, which is naturally very problematic, especially given the difficult financial situation in the country. According to experts, the situation here is normalized during 7-10 days, but only this period will suffer far from one thousand passengers.

Interruptions in the schedule are also not the greatest joy for hundreds of passengers, and despite the fact that this problem does not seem so bright, in reality things are much worse - flights to which previously had very convenient transplants ceased to exist, and passengers are forced to move around air schedules, which naturally disrupts the normal quality of service, makes use of more expensive services, etc.

The change in the tariff scale provided by new air carriers that replaced Transaero can be attributed both to a negative phenomenon and to a positive one. This is primarily due to the fact that the air ticket prices for a number of routes have increased significantly (increase from 7 to 15%), which naturally causes additional losses to passengers, however, a number of other air routes show almost two-fold reduction in price (flight Moscow - Magadan).

Nevertheless, it is necessary to clarify that held still only the first day after the airline "Transaero" has ceased activity, and in fact, the real "fruits" can appear as early as during the week, and, according to experts, they will be clearly negative.
