Dobrolet VS Railways, as well as CSKA Moscow VS Lokomotiv

Airline "Dobrolet, "subsidiary low-cost carrier"Aeroflot"received the certificate of the operator, having so far only two aircraft in its fleet Boeing-737-800, But reserved in the "Aeroflot" SuperJet-100That is absolutely not suitable for loukost-traffic, but will fit as a protocol unit necessary for a procedural formality.

Now "Dobrolet", according to general director Vitaly Savelyev airlines, exploring potentially profitable routes, focusing on the priority areas from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Perm, Ufa, Samara and Yekaterinburg, in a radius of 2500 km from the capital of Russia. Flights scheduled to begin in July and the end of this year's fleet will grow to 8-of aircraft to a 2018-mu of the company's plans to grow five times.

Based "Dobrolet" will Sheremetyevo Airport, Terminal B, where you can count on the lowest rates of service and favorable terms, thereby flights on the routes to be declared on 15% lower than the prices of "Aeroflot". In addition to the cost of the ticket will not include lunch, which also reduces the cost of the ticket. Alas, at the moment it is impossible to reduce the price to the previously announced 25% due to difficult economic conditions and the initial stage of a promotion campaign.

Loukost market in the Russian aviation is yet in its infancy. Company SkyExpress could not long exist largely because create real competition in the market and could not survive under extremely complex conditions of survival, and the European low-cost airlines in this segment is not allowed even at the level of European flights, for obvious reasons. Irish from RyanAir while they still can not arrange documentation for starting work in St. Petersburg, apparently, this kind of red tape will be followed by their every intention to open a new route or expand their activities while they and other recognized leaders of the European market in neighboring countries of Russia long-haul transport is already developing its activities in no way confusing the “high-flying birds,” which, as you know, have always worked on a different contingent of customers.

This is currently the continuation of football showdown

between CSKA and Lokomotiv,

where "Army Aviation"

Club again looks interesting "railroad".

It is no secret that in Europe loukostery primarily focused on the contingent, which would not have used the services of aircraft and tried to get from conditional Vilnius to Paris by land transport, there are not direct competitors of "large" carriers, biting them only a small part of the traffic.

When the general director of Dobrolet, Vitaly Savichev, began comparing the promising prices for flights by his company’s airplanes with the tariffing of rail traffic, putting himself in the segment between the second-class carriage and compartment carriage (let's not forget about the significant time gain, which is often more important than money) creating “Dobrolet” Aeroflot not only occupies a niche that their competitors could “stake out” for themselves, but also take away a “piece of cake” from Russian Railways. Such a continuation of the football clashes between CSKA and Lokomotiv, in which the “aviation-army” club again looks more interesting than the “railway workers”.

It would be desirable, of course, that companies that would compete under the laws of the market with a subsidiary of the recognized leader of Russian air travel would appear on the low-cost market, but in this situation we have to rejoice that this segment even began to develop in such a format among customers. " Aeroflot "there is some choice - to fly with full comfort or not, to pay attention to a small loss of time or not. Yes, and a certain number of potentially “iron” customers of the Russian Railways will still try to lure the aviation market, however.
