Russia's Ministry of Transport reported (14-Sep-2016) domestic aviation passengers increased by 7% year-on-year to 33 million passengers in the eight months ended Aug-2016. Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov stated: "The five support programmes for different types of regional air transport, including transport from the Far East and Siberian regions, have contributed to this increase. This programme has been working for several years now. We expect two airports to pass the five million mark with this season’s results – the airports at Simferopol and Sochi. This is a good result."
