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.
