Impact of coronavirus pandemic

In 4M and April 2020, operating results were affected by the dynamics of demand and significant flight restrictions imposed amid the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. In addition to the suspension of international flights, quarantine restrictions in Russia and passengers’ propensity to travel amid pandemic affected the decline in domestic traffic indicators.

Aeroflot Group has optimized the planned flight programme, reducing capacity in April by 90%. Operated flights provided for the minimum connectivity between Moscow and the regions. Due to the mentioned restrictions, which affected demand, flights were operated with a reduced load, taking into account the reduction in capacity the number of flights in April was only 4.5 thousand.

After reduced traffic volumes in April and May, in June Aeroflot Group begins to gradually restore operating volumes (Pobeda airlines will resume flights on June 1), initially focusing on the progressive resumption of flights to domestic destinations.

Fleet update

In April 2020, Aeroflot Group phased out one Airbus А-330-300 aircraft. As of 30 April 2020, Group and Company fleet had 360 and 246 aircraft, respectively.
