And loss such areas as the Ukraine, Egypt, Turkey, the loss of the second volume of the carrier – airline “Transaero”, of course, could not affect the industry’s performance. Although the fall, as was predicted by some experts, did not happen. And in this year, Russian airlines will serve approximately the same number of passengers as last 2014 – 93-94 million people.
