Major airlines

Because of the economic slowdown, the number of Russian commercial airlines decreased from 389 companies registered in 1996 to 113 in 2016. This dramatic reduction is a direct reflection of market consolidation and the government’s policy to raise barriers for new players entering the air transport market. The airline assets controlled by the federal government are merged into the Aeroflot Group. Other local carriers are either privately owned or controlled by regional authorities.

After the demise in late 2015 of Transaero, Russia’s second largest airline, the local market has been dominated principally by the Aeroflot Group and several other large players comprising S7 Group (which includes S7 Airlines and Globus), as well as UTair and Ural Airlines.  Currently, the top-10 Russian airlines control 80% of the Russian market (see the diagram below), whilst foreign airlines carried less than 10 per cent of overall passenger numbers – or 28% of passengers on international routes to/from Russia in 2015.
