Ban on IL 86 flights to Egypt discussed for five years but never imposed since Egypt itself wants Russian tourists, says Ural Airlines
‘The discussions of a possible ban on the use of IL 86 planes for flying Russian tourists to Egypt have been going on for the last five years, but the decisions have always been favorable for these airplanes since Egypt itself is interested in our travelers,’ says the spokesperson for Ural Airlines.
‘There are two possible outcomes right now: according to the first scenario, Russian aviation authorities, including the Department of Transport, will negotiate for the use of IL 86 planes, as this is what quite a few Russian carriers and their customers want. The second scenario means the planes will be banned and traded in for other types of aircraft. Ural Airlines, for one, is going to use Airbus A320, which won’t affect the price of the ticket, for Airbus is just as fuel-efficient,’ the spokesperson claims.
‘As a matter of fact, the tickets might grow even cheaper due to the fact that Ural Airlines are just about to introduce a scheduled Yekaterinburg-Hurghada flight. If a flight is a scheduled and not chartered one, the carrier can afford to have regular ticket sales to balance the passenger load in difference times of the year.’
