Domestic flights

Domestic flights make a major contribution to the total passenger traffic with 55.3% of the total passengers carried. Given the difference in average stage length between Russian and international destinations, domestic flights account for 40.4% of the total capacity.

Aeroflot Group’s airlines carried 33.6 million passengers on domestic routes in 2019, up 8.5% year-on-year, with Pobeda accounting for almost all of the Group’s domestic growth, or 2.5 million passengers out of the 2.6 million total Group-wide traffic growth.

International flights

Aeroflot Group’s airlines carried 27.1 million passengers on international routes in 2019, up 9.6% year-on-year. Most of that traffic came from network carriers, Aeroflot and Rossiya, due to the focus on international transfer development in line with the Group’s Development Strategy, as well as Rossiya’s capacity utilisation for a number of major international destinations from Sheremetyevo airport and the contribution from Rossiya’s charter programme.

Aeroflot airline

Aeroflot airline carried 37.2 million passengers in 2019, up 4.1% year-on-year. The company focused on ramping up a number of destinations opened in 2018 during the winter 2018/2019 season, which explains the moderate growth in passenger traffic in 2019.

Aeroflot airline’s passenger turnover exceeded a major milestone of 100 billion RPK and stood at 101.6 billion RPK, up 3.8% year-on-year. Available seat-kilometres increased by 5.5% to 128.3 billion ASK.

The company made 291.7 thousand flights, with a passenger load factor of 79.2% (down 1.3 p. p. year-on-year). The passenger load factor remained high but experienced some pressure in 2019 due to excess capacity in the market.
