40 Direct Flights Connected The Cities of the Volga Region

A pilot project for the development of trans-regional passenger airlift was launched  in the Volga Federal District.


As a result, 40 direct flights have connected 15 cities in the district  that would strengthen the economy of the territories, including the development of the travel industry. According to the press office of Plenipotentiary Representative of Volga Federal District, for the first time in 20 years, it became possible to get directly from one region to another by plane, bypassing Moscow. The main advantage of the project is the increase of the mobility of the population of the Russian Federation. In virtue of the project time savings of passengers in transit comparing to surface transport estimated 1.5 million hours per year. At the same time, passengers will have to pay only 50% of the ticket price. The remaining 50% will be sponsored by the federal (25%) and regional (25%) budgets.
