The situation with jet fuel in Russia is paradoxical: demand is declining, while prices are rising.

The head of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), Maxim Shaskolsky, noted that both liquefied hydrocarbon gas (the price has fallen three times since the beginning of the year) and gasoline (in the wholesale market) are getting cheaper. But with jet fuel it’s different.

At the same time, air ticket prices should not rise, since the damper mechanism has a deterrent effect – airlines are compensated for fuel costs from the budget.

According to RBC, aviation kerosene began to rise in price in April 2020. Then a ton of fuel cost 24 thousand rubles. Now 65 thousand.

Earlier, Russian Minister of Transport Vitaly Savelyev said that the aviation industry is working stably. “So far we do not see the prerequisites for bankruptcy. The companies are all holding on. Of course, they need to be stimulated and helped,” he stressed.

According to Savelyev, 100 billion rubles have been allocated from the budget for these purposes. Help is targeted. Funds are provided in the form of subsidies for passenger kilometers: the more passengers the airline carries, the more money it receives.
