Russian Civil Aviation keeps hitting

Started the year, in addition to old problems, brought the Russian aircraft and several new ones. This removal of the office from the Interstate Aviation Committee, which will be distributed between the Federal Air Transport Agency, the Ministry of Industry and

Ministry of Transport. Under the threat of further sales of our SSJ-100 in Europe and America. The fact is that the certificates that were issued by the Italian aviation authorities, in agreement with the IAC, are now completely “stuck”. Now EASA -

The European Aviation Safety Agency is to develop new joint agreements with the Federal Air Transport Agency and the Ministry of Industry and Trade on the certification of aircraft and their parts. This is undoubtedly important for the promotion of Sukhoi not only in Italian, but also in the entire market of the EU and both Americas. How long will last, new official negotiations by the IAC successors with the Italian side is not known. The fate of the SSJ-100 in the international market is still hanging in the air.

Another blow to so far, almost the only exported domestic passenger aircraft was the abolition of duties on the importation of aircraft passenger seating 51-109. And this is just the category of aircraft class SSJ-100. Thus, on the domestic market of the EAEU with the possibility of using on external flights, the road to the competitors of “Sukhoi” - Embraer E-Jet and Bombardier CRJ700 - is open.

On the one hand, it contributes to the development of the market in this class of aircraft, and, on the other hand, can the SCAC withstand such fierce competition and temporary isolation from the international market?

KLA "Russia" has taken under his wing, and Oren Air Donavia, restructured and will have one operator certificate. The entire fleet is certified by JSC "Russian", the fate of the small "daughters" of "Aeroflot is not disclosed.

Whether they will keep their liveries and established routes is also unknown. Part of the aircraft of the late Transaero, too, will depart Petersburg "Russia". Employees OrenAria and Donavia will be employed, probably, in the Moscow branch of "Russia", the main fleet and employees will remain in St. Petersburg "Pulkovo". We will see how events and affairs will develop in UAC “Russia” over time.

After leaving Transaero, AK S7, which traditionally occupied 3-4 in terms of traffic volume, marks its place. How it turns out, too, time will tell. After all, according to the disappointing forecasts of Rosaviatsiya, based on data on the steady decline in traffic in 2015, by the end of 2016, 5-6 carriers' carriers may leave the market.

Disappointing forecasts today (26.01.16) announced Yury Malyshev, Deputy Head of the Federal Air Transport Agency traffic control management. According to him, the situation may save the development of foreign tourism in Russia, the development of its domestic air transportation market and the recovery of former transport volumes on the Egyptian direction.

Transportation on international routes decreased by 18,6% over the year, transportation between Russia and the CIS countries decreased by 0,6%. And only domestic shipments showed a steady increase of 13,6%.

If the situation does not change drastically by the summer schedule, and domestic airlines cannot accumulate a reserve for the winter of the 2016 year, several AKs can part with their operator certificates.

Another fact can not but alarm. According to the results of the monitoring by the Federal Air Transport Agency, the financial condition of domestic carriers, she stated that the share of airlines with low solvency increased, this is almost half of all AKs with operator certificates (54%). Results for the first 9 months of 2015 of the year, and may change, emphasizes Victoria Sharomova, head of the department of economics and development programs of Rosaviatsia.
2016 year, could be decisive for the domestic air travel market. Either he finds the opportunity to develop and work in today's harsh conditions, or get a good blow from which not all will be able to recover the AK. So, our sky may return to the sole ownership of "Aeroflot", but that we have already passed. Or do we have to fly foreign airlines.
Soft landings for all of us, no matter in whose livery will board.
