MINSK, 9 February (BelTA) – The Russian low-cost airline Pobeda has been offered the same tariffs as other Russian air carriers, Director General of Minsk National Airport Dmitry Melikyan told the media ahead of the wrap-up session of the Transport and Communications Ministry on 9 February, BelTA informs.
“Yesterday we met with a Pobeda representative to explain that the tariffs offered to Pobeda do not differ from those agreed upon with Aeroflot, Utair, and Yamal. These three Russian airlines operate regular flights to Minsk. There are no special unreasonably high tariffs for Pobeda,” Dmitry Melikyan underlined.
The Ministry of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade regulates the tariffs in Belarus, he clarified. “There are tariffs for foreign companies, Russian airlines, and domestic ones. These tariffs are available to the public,” Dmitry Melikyan added.
Recently, Russian mass media have reported that Pobeda is not satisfied with the tariffs offered by Minsk National Airport for the St. Petersburg-Minsk air service.
BelTA reported earlier that in December 2017 Pobeda was authorized to offer flights between Saint Petersburg and Minsk and between Moscow and Gomel. The carrier will be able to offer flights to Gomel as from 16 February and to Minsk as from 25 March.More about Society
