International aviation forum Wings of the Future — a priceless source of information, contacts and solutions for your business

End of 2016 marked another turning point for Russia’s air transport industry, which went into a steep climb. The causes for this change are still to be analyzed and fully comprehended, but just in five months of this year the country’s airlines carries 35.81 million passengers, up 22% on the same period last year. In May industry-wide traffic growth rate reached 26%. International traffic has been surging at an even higher rate of 36.7% in the first four months of the year. All this is apparently good news.

But the interesting new is that this aggressive growth is once again accompanied by the features so typical for the Russian air travel market, and which shaped its pre-crisis condition. One of these features is disproportionate capacity growth. By now the capacity has increased by nearly 15%, which is roughly equivalent to the capacity reduction caused by Transaero’s bankruptcy.

This unrestrained capacity growth is inevitably linked to price wars of everyone against everyone, a worsening shortage of qualified staff both in the sky and on the ground, and suppliers’ avid pursuit to get their share of the pie by any means, here and now.

Once again, all of the deficiencies of ground and air infrastructure, regulations both Russian and international manifest themselves clearly, dramatically and extremely painfully, as well as disbalance in ruble and currency cash-flow, and the industry’s overall disability to pursue a thought-out and concerted policy, to formulate and defend its interests.

Stimulated by the unrestrained capacity growth, the competition is becoming ever more fierce, leading to price dumping and reduction in operational revenues.

The only way not to stall on yet another maneuver of the ruthless flight is to raise the efficiency of all market stake-holders. Information is the key to efficiency, the base for shaping a winning strategy. International aviation forum Wings of the Future – is a priceless source of information for all those who are striving to understand what the future holds for the Russian air travel market.
