Igor Delduzhov, President of the Sheremetyevo Flight Crew Union, announced a large financial burden on airlines due to the introduction of mandatory PCR testing of crew members. This will definitely affect the increase in airfare.

So, according to Delduzhov, an average of 10 thousand rubles is needed for one-time testing of flight attendants and pilots. Considering that tests must be taken every three days, the amount per month will be about 100 thousand rubles.

“If it is within a year - 3 billion rubles. This is an insane burden on the company, of course, it will shift it to passengers, which means that the cost of tickets will rush into space", - Delduzhov quoted NEWS.ru as saying. He believes that PCR testing is not a way out of the situation, since in fact the numbers may be even higher.

Earlier it was reported that Pobeda Airlines intends to increase the cost of tickets by about 2%. This is due to the fact that the new rules for medical examination of flight attendants have led to an increase in costs - at least 30 thousand rubles per employee per year.
