Aeroflot, Russia’s flagship carrier, has announced about the updated strategy targeting 130 million passengers in 2028. The Group’s fleet is expected to reach 600 aircraft, of which 235 will be Russian-built.
Considering the current situation, the Group is set to have each airline focused on its own priorities, introducing even more differentiation.
The statement provides that, for example, Aeroflot will concentrate on long-haul services. Pobeda will focus on budget travel, keeping a goal to carry 55-65 million passengers in 2028. Meanwhile, Rossiya airline will focus on the Russian domestic market.
“The strategy through 2028 is called 30/30, as it calls for an increase in passenger traffic by 30 million, and a decrease in the average fares for economy-class passengers in Russia by 30%,” said Vitaly Saveliev, CEO of Aeroflot.
