Foreign airlines will be allowed to fly within Russia

Foreign airlines will be allowed to service domestic flights during the World Cup 2018.

As follows from the information provided by the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, foreign air carriers will be allowed cabotage flights on the territory of the Russian Federation during the World Cup. It is assumed that this approach will save you from peak loads, flight disruptions and other troubles, however, it is emphasized that this applies only to charter flights and when using high-capacity airliners.

On the other hand, independent experts believe that foreign air carriers can create problems for Russian airlines, which are expected to significantly increase their key performance indicators during the period of the 2018 World Cup, however, no comments on this from major domestic air operators yet that did not arrive.
