Demand For Air Travel Has Fallen
February 13, 2016 17:05


The park of passenger aircrafts of Russian airlines fell to its lowest level in 2015 over the last decade. The cause was the sharp decline in demand for air travel and the economic crisis. This was written by “Kommersant” with a reference to the data of the experts of the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation.

According to them, the Russian aircraft park grew by 123 passenger aircrafts annually from 2008 to 2014. In 2015 only 59 aircrafts were delivered. At the same time the aircraft park that included 753 planes at the beginning of the year was reduced by 235 passenger aircrafts.

The majority - 72 percent of long-distance aircrafts - were of foreign origin. About 95 percent of the market fell to the medium-range Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. As the newspaper notes, the experts associate the fall of the market with the exit of the second largest “Transaero” airline company. At the same time the number of passenger aircrafts available is also redundant. According to the analysts interviewed by the publication, at the end of the high summer season 2016 the companies whose business is based on tourist traffic will either have to drastically cut prices on its services or give up a part of their park.

On January 26 it was reported that the number of passengers on international flights of the Russian airlines fell by nearly 16 percent in 2015, down to 39.5 million, as compared with 46.9 million in 2014. Transportations to the CIS countries fell even more drastically - by 18.6 percent, down to 32.3 million. 7.2 million passengers traveled to the CIS, which is slightly less than in last year - by 0.6 percent. Against this background the number of passengers traveling around Russia increased: airline companies transported 52.5 million people on domestic flights, which is 13.6 percent more than the results of 2014.
