Avia passenger flow in Ukraine in January – May cut down by 8.7%

In the first 5 months of 2013 airlines have cut down the transportation of passengers in Ukraine by 8.7% - up to 2.3 million people.

At that, the passenger traffic has been reduced by 24.7% - up to 3.56 billion passenger kilometers. I.e., both the total number of passengers and the average flight distance have gone down.

Experts connect this recession with the termination of “AeroSvit” activities and with the active growth of the passenger flow in 2012 during the preparation for Euro-2012.
