Moscow. March 28. Aeroflot may raise the prices of tickets due to the growth of tariffs for services of the airports, but it requires analysis and monitoring of the market, said General Director of airline Vitaly Savelyev in an interview with TV channel “Russia 24” on Monday.
“Price is a weighted thing, we will watch the market. Of course, if all up, we have to do something. But what we do will not. But in the loss can not fly. If we can not cope with production costs, we obtain explicitly the loss, we can’t afford,” said Savelyev.
“Sheremetyevo” (the base airport of the carrier) leads to a reasonable increase of tariffs, on average 7.5% and as a company, we understand that airports need to raise fares because they need to recoup the investment and the borrowed funds that they borrow to invest in the development of the airport. But we should all understand that any company, including Aeroflot, – the last extreme (chain) the provision of services to passengers. And when all providers in the chain lift services – oil companies, handlers and airport service – then we all should put in a ticket”, – said the head of the company.
But there is a risk that “a passenger may not fly, not to raise the price,” said Savelyev.
“And we are telling airports: guys, don’t do it. Therefore, we must be very careful,” he said, adding that the company had approached the government asking to pay attention to this issue.
