Disasters Russian air carriers. Opportunities and solutions


To date, dozens of airports operate in Russia, and given the fact that a large number of passengers prefer to travel precisely through air transport, civil aviation in the country should be very effective. Nevertheless, as can be seen from the latest aviation news, in particular concerning domestic air carriers, things are not as good here as it can be - with a part of Russia's cities air traffic is very bad, in some parts of the country except on land transport in general can not be reached , Thus, not only air carriers, but also passengers themselves suffer. Given the current situation, it should be noted that even countries with much less organized routes very rarely work at a loss, and, therefore, it is certainly worth mentioning and developing the theme of air travel on the territory of the country.



Air carriers themselves are not in a hurry to advertise their problems before the full collapse, but information is constantly slipping that companies suffer losses, and very large, the prices for air tickets are growing, and the number of passengers is sharply reduced. Specialists have repeatedly noted that the blame for everything is the illiterate approach to the organization of passenger transportation throughout the country, and if to regulate this industry, it will be possible not only to ensure effective air communication between almost all cities with airports, but also to increase passenger turnover, increase profits Airlines, etc.



A typical example of inappropriately high price of air tickets can become regular information regarding fuel consumption airliners. As you know, the majority of flights shedule country uses modern aircraft that spend a minimum amount of fuel to overcome the required distance, but despite this, prices for air travel continues to grow. If we compare the situation with the United States, there are several very interesting factors zavisemosti completely deny the enormous rise in air travel due to fuel:

  • Airfare tickets at the lowest cost, at almost equal distances different in almost half (air travel in the United States are cheaper);
  • Most American carriers use "old" aircraft that consume more fuel;
  • Workload most American flights (flights between major cities) is 70-75%.


Thus, overpriced tickets from Russian air carriers remains unjustified, although, in practice, flights, subsidized by the state, are extremely popular, even though they themselves carriers there is a real opportunity to increase their profits at the expense of reducing the price of air tickets, which sounds very paradoxical.

Another factor, aimed at increasing and improving the quality of civil air transportation in the country is the need for the development of routes between the various cities of the country, including as between remote and between closely spaced. In this case, the air will also be cheap to manage passengers during this flight for one hour, will provide much comfort of passengers, rather than a comparison with a trip to overland transport.



Competent organization of flights, in the event that will be carried out maintenance of aircraft operating on several routes, will save a year hundreds of millions of dollars, which naturally reduce the loss of air carriers.

Thus, at the present time, domestic airlines are more inclined to think not about opening new air routes, but about the development of existing ones, including this also applies to reducing the price of air tickets and improving the quality of services provided. It is possible that domestic air carriers will be able to realize this in the near future and will change their development policy, but the delay already shows that large Russian airlines not only lose their passengers, but also suffer colossal losses due to the foolhardy program of their own development.

Interesting article, I'm no expert, but probably agree with the author of this article. Sam try to move overseas aviaperevozschikami: the service is higher than the rossiyanskih avviakompany price tickets and more pleasant.
