The policy of price control. Will tickets cheaper?


Citizens of the country has long been noted that the prices of airline tickets are growing exponentially, and, often, even the experts can not explain the reasons why the cost of a ticket is so big and still continues to grow. Of course, a number of domestic carriers attempting in this case to create some favorable conditions for passengers, offering special rates at a very low and attractive prices, however, it is literally at the end of last week it was reported that the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) in the near future will begin to regulate civil aviation sector by setting maximum prices for air tickets in economy class. At first glance it may seem that the innovation is unlikely to bring any noticeable improvement, however, in reality, harm and negativity of such measures may be much greater than the benefits.



According to official data, the Federal Antimonopoly Service in the near future may impose an upper limit on the price of air tickets in economy class. This in turn should help to align the prices for air travel among domestic carriers, thus providing passengers with the most affordable airfare.

Experts especially emphasize that should regulate not only the upper but also the lower limit value, or in essence, become completely monopolized the civil aviation sector in Russia.

It is assumed that the most effective activities of domestic flights shedule option is to use a special tariff system, which will combine the nominal cost of the air carrier to provide air transport services, taking into account a fixed rate of return. In this case, provided the normal regulation of prices for air tickets, but there is a small disadvantage - flights shedule will be in different conditions.
