Support for regional air transport has proposed to increase 1.1 of meiliana rubles

the transport Ministry plans to increase subsidies for regional air transport 1.1 billion. The airline requested for this purpose 34 billion, with the limit of 8.4 billion rubles.

1.1 billion rubles — this is a leftover from last year, reported “Kommersant”. Airlines choose the most convenient routes, so subsidies are often not spent in full.

the Government has not yet made a decision to increase subsidies for regional routes.

In the Federal budget-2020 approved grants in the amount of 8.4 billion rubles, and in 2019 was 8.1 billion rubles.

In 2019, 21 Russian airlines transported at subsidized regional routes 1.9 million.

the Grants provide the Federal and regional budgets after the approval of the government.

In 2020 regional transportation carry out S7 airlines, “UTair”, “Nordavia”, “Nordstar” and small regional companies.
