Demand for flights to Crimea


The Ministry of Transport announced an unprecedented growth in demand for air travel to the Crimea

28 May. According to the official report of the Ministry of Transport, the demand for air travel to the Crimea exceeded all expectations, and continues to grow.

Thanks to direct flights between different regions of the Russian Federation, it was possible not only to attract a huge number of passengers, but also to make the flights themselves very comfortable and cheap. In addition, the Ministry of Transport is confident that another possible factor in increasing passenger flow was the government subsidized air transportation program.

It is worth noting that the growth of passenger traffic will certainly have to increase in the future, since according to the signed presidential decree, from 2016, air transportation between the Crimea will not be subject to VAT, which today is 18%.
