Russians are waiting for the "inevitable" rise in price of air tickets

Carriers will increase the fuel surcharge due to the rise in the cost of kerosene

By the end of the month, Russian airlines intend to raise prices for air tickets, Kommersant learned. According to the publication, carriers are forced to take such a step because of the spring jump in prices for aviation fuel by 20%.

Air tickets in Russia will soon "inevitably rise in price," writes Kommersant, citing a letter from the largest Russian carrier to travel agents.

So, starting from July 26, fuel surcharge on domestic flights can grow by 200 rubles for economy class and "comfort", and for business class - by 400 rubles. According to the interlocutor of the publication, while maintaining such a price dynamics for aviation fuel, tickets for tours for the winter season may go up by 10%.

The prices for air transportation are also increased by foreign companies, for example Qatar Airways. According to sources of the publication in the tourism market, the carrier warned operators about a rise in prices of € 20-40 on international flights.

In early summer, the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEVT), which includes 27 airlines, warned the government that rising fuel prices could lead to a jump in ticket prices. The letter stated that only in 2017 aviation kerosene on average increased in price by more than 23%.
