The UAE: Few Charters – Higher Prices
   Travel market experts forecast 15-20% increase in rates for charters to the UAE owing the end of the winter charter program on May 12th. ‘S7 will operate fights by TU-154 aircraft. Besides, Pakistan Airlines, Aeroflot and Emirates Airlines will realize one flight each. Air traffic to the UAE will be marked with growth of rates due to the cost development of seats’, explained Andrey Zorin, the Head of the UAE department of Russian Express.
   Meanwhile, Sergey Prigolovkin, CEO of PAKS Company, commented as follows: ‘air traffic cost by TU-154 is higher than by IL-86. A charter seat on IL-86 costs 270Euro, while a charter seat on TU-154 can cost more than 320Euro’.
   Meanwhile, national airline companies of the Emirates also set higher rates for air traffic starting from May 1st – a one-way flight increased in price by around $17 (Emirates.su). A BANKO correspondent found out that the growth in price was provoked by the increased airport fees.
    In summer the increased prices will mainly affect tourists traveling on business and those who go to shop tours. However, the demand for the UAE is 10% higher than last year. According to tour operators, launch of new charter programs in summer could keep prices at the present level, however, due to constant increase in fuel prices it will not happen.
