In the first half of 2016, total operating expenditures rose at a slower pace than revenue: passenger revenue per available seat-kilometre increased by 18.9%, while costs per available seat-kilometre rose 8.6%...Increased fuel efficiency and lower unit consumption, combined with a decrease in the average cost of fuel, enabled us to hold fuel costs, the single largest cost line, almost unchanged year-on-year despite a 4.6% increase in Group flight hours."  [more - original PR - English/Russian]
