  • Published by Vedat
The Russian state carrier, Aeroflot, is planning to launch a budget airline similar to easyJet or Ryanair.

The plans for budget carriers revealed after easyJet launched flights between Moscow and London in March. The competition in the market will expand with next month’s launch of the Hungarian airline Wizz Air’s flights between Budapest and the Russian capital.

Aeroflot, which still controls 40 percent of the Russian aviation market, is hoping from 2014 to launch its first budget routes from Moscow to Saint Petersburg and to cities in the south of Russia.

Analysts point to the fact that many Russians are still making long journeys across the vast country by train, often lasting several days and may be easily tempted to fly if the prices are lower.
