Russian airlines’ April passenger traffic increased by 8.3%

But it still 8.6% below pre-Covid level

Russia’s airlines carried a total of 8.2 million passengers in April, representing a 8.3% increase year-on-year, Rosaviatsia revealed earlier this month.

Of the total, 6.2 million passengers flew domestically (+3.1%) with 2 million travelling on international flights (up 28.3%). 

The growth of passenger traffic in 2024 is facilitated, among other things, by sales campaigns held by the country’s largest airlines, the aviation regulator noted.

“The volume of air transportation in Russia is actively recovering and tends to reach pre-pandemic values. This is happening largely due to the restructuring of demand in the tourism segment – the domestic market is growing and the situation on international destinations has stabilized,” commented Fedor Borisov, head of the analytical center of the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation.

Russian airlines’ April figures represent 91.4% of pre-Covid level.

In the first four months of 2024, Russian airlines carried a total of 31.1 million people.
