MOSCOW, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian and the Czech aviation authorities have agreed to liberalize air service between the two countries. The Czech Airlines faced financial problems after its passenger load had dropped because of the crisis in Ukraine.
The 2015 summer schedule of flights Moscow — Prague will be serviced by a second appointed air carrier; Czech airline companies will perform flights to new destinations in Russia, while Russian cargo transportation airline companies will be given more rights in the Czech Republic, says a memorandum on mutual understandings adopted at the talks.
At present, flights connecting Prague with Moscow are serviced by the Russian Aeroflot company and the Czech Airlines company, which are authorized to perform 28 flights per week altogether.
The second air carrier appointed by each side will be entitled to seven flights per week each.
The Czech air carriers have been authorized to broaden their air routes to Russia, which now will include Kazan (Tatarstan), Volgograd in the south of Russia and Voronezh in central Russia.
The Russian air transportation companies have been authorized to take cargoes on board in the Czech Republic not only en route from Russia to a third country, but when performing flights with no destinations on the Russian territory.
