MOSCOW, February 27, (ITAR-TASS). Rossiya Airlines registers a decline in demand for flights between St. Petersburg and Kiev, company sources have told Tass.
“The company operates one daily flight, making decision on a second flight on the same day proceeding from the number of passengers buying tickets for that very date. The decision on sharing the same flight or flight cancellation is made beforehand, while the code sharing agreement with Ukrainian International Airlines - MAU makes it possible to meet all commitments to the passengers,” a company representative said.
Earlier reports said Russian carriers were fixing a decline in demand for flights to Kiev and a growing demand for tickets from Kiev.
A representative of Transaero said earlier that in view of a difficult situation in the Ukrainian capital, the decision had been made to reduce the capacity on the Moscow-Kiev route by about 18 percent.
The schedule of flights to Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk and Odessa, the cities in southern and eastern Ukraine, has not changed, Transaero sources say.
