ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. International airlines will see growth of passenger traffic only in case the economic situation stabilizes, Russia’s Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov told TASS Friday.
"This depends on the macroeconomic situation in the country. When the wage rates and the exchange rate between national and foreign currencies make it economically advantageous and reasonable to travel abroad the passenger traffic will be back," he said.
