MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) — The accident rate of Russia’s civil aviation over past two decades is down by ten times, head of Rosaviatsiya Alexander Neradko said on Monday.
“The complex of undertaken measures has reduced the accident level over past 20 years by about ten times,” he said. In 1991, there were 111 aviation accidents, while over past five years, “not more than 13 accidents a year,” he added.
In 2011, the number of operated flights exceeded that of the Soviet times, he continued.
“Against 2010, the number of flights grew by 12.6 percent and exceeded the level of 1992,” he said. “We served 166.7 million passengers, which is more than in the USSR in 1990.”
Rosaviatsiya is Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency overseeing civil aviation.
